Details revealed as Bruno Fernandes ‘closing in’ on new Man United contract
The signing of Bruno Fernandes has proven to be one of the best bits of business Manchester United have done in years.
The Portuguese arrived at Old Trafford from Sporting CP in January of 2020, and has since gone on to completely dominate the English top-flight.
Fernandes, of course, played a key role in United securing a Champions League for 2019/20.
The midfield maestro was then once again in top form this past season. In total, Fernandes netted 28 and assisted 17 in 58 outings across all competitions this season – a feat which saw Fernandes named as Man United’s Player of the Year.
Fernandes’ fine form has also carried over into the current campaign for the Red Devils.
Fernandes has already scored four in four in the Premier League this term whilst also providing a superb assist for Cristiano Ronaldo vs Young Boys earlier this week.
