The additional fees would take the player’s cost upwards of 50 million pounds
Opening the strings of their purse in the January of 2020 to indulge in the services of Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United have managed to recover every last pound the club spent on the player.
Clause In Bruno’s Contract Revealed
The Premier League had ended up paying Portugal’s Sporting Lisbon an incredible 46.6 million pounds, a fees which has been more than justified. However, the side could end up paying an additional 4.2 million pounds to the player’s old employers as per reports emanating from England.
A string of outlets have gone onto report that Sporting Lisbon have inserted a clause in Bruno’s deal, one which will see Manchester United be asked to dish out the extra amount. The figure will be required to switch hands if Bruno Fernandes ends up winning the PFA Player Of The Year award this season or ends up in the top three of the Ballon d’Or award.
Given Bruno’s exceptional form this term, the player could easily end up being crowned the Player Of The Season Award in the showpiece league. The player has gone onto net on a staggering 15 occasions along with providing the 11 assists in the matches he’s partaken in for the club.
The numbers have seen him top his side’s goal scoring ranks and spearhead his club’s charge into second place. However, it’s a position which could end up slipping from the club’s grasp with the team waning in form and quality at the moment.
