United’s Bruno Fernandes signs new four-year deal



Manchester United’s midfield ace, Bruno Fernandes, has signed a 250,000 per week contract, seeing him among top three earners at the club.


Bruno has been spectacular for the Red Devils since his arrival from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020.


He helped lead the club back into the Premier League top four last season with 28 goals in 58 games across all competitions.


Bruno signed a five-and-a-half year deal when he first joined the club. His new contract now adds one extra season with increase in renumeration.

He stated that, “From the moment that I joined Manchester United, I have had a special relationship with the club and our amazing fans. I grew up watching this team, dreaming of getting the chance to play here one day. That dream is now a reality and an honour.


“Even after two years, it still feels amazing to step out at Old Trafford, to hear the fans sing my song and to score in front of the Stretford End. It is a true privilege to wear this shirt and to fight for our incredible club.

“There is so much more that I want to achieve here, and I know that is the same for the rest of the squad and staff. More than anything, we want to give the fans the success that they deserve.

“We have shared some great moments over the last years, but the best is yet to come from myself and this team.”

Manchester United football director John Murtough added, “Everyone is well aware of Bruno’s importance to Manchester United. His goals and assists record is phenomenal and he has performed remarkably consistently since he joined the Club.


“Bruno’s work-rate, dedication and fantastic attitude are exactly what we want from a Manchester United player. He is the ultimate professional with many fantastic attributes to drive the high standards required to play for this great Club.


“Bruno, like everyone across the Football Club, remains hugely ambitious and determined to deliver sustained success on the pitch to get us back to challenging for titles.”
