Bruno Fernandes New Contract: The club is looking to move early in a bid to stave off increasing interested in the Portuguese midfielder.
Ever since his move to Manchester United in January of 2020, Bruno Fernandes has taken over charge of the club’s attacking gameplan. He’s taken to the Premier League like a fish takes to water, having an instant and telling impact to emerge as the club’s top scorer ever since his transfer.
And he’s only gone onto improve with each passing match with the midfielder further upping the ante come the 2020-21 edition of the league. He played a notable role in his side’s 3-1 win against West Ham at the weekend with him running the show despite only being brought on in the second half.
Manchester United Set To Double Bruno Fernandes’ Wages As Part Of His Lucrative New Contract
His gripping form has seen the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid stand up and take attention with both the La Liga clubs touted to hold an interest in Fernandes. And Manchester United haven’t been oblivious to the growing pile of suitors with the club set to make Bruno a new offer in the coming days.
Reports emerging from England claim that Manchester United will be offering Bruno a new deal, one which will see his weekly wages be doubled to 2,00,000 pounds. The old Sporting Lisbon man is currently tied down to a 1,00,000 pounds per week contract, one he agreed to as part of his 4 and a half year deal which keeps him at the club till 2025.
Despite seeing his wages being doubled, Fernandes will be quite some way off the top earners mark at the club. David de Gea is on a whopping 3,50,000 pound per week deal while Pogba is pocketing home 3,00,000 pounds weekly.
Fernandes has accrued 22 goals and 14 assists in his 38 matches for Manchester United with the numbers seeing manager Ole claim that Bruno exerts the same influence on the club as Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Some of the best teams I’ve played in have had a system of inner justice, where things get sorted out on the pitch.
“If you ask me, the players have reacted really well to what Bruno has been doing.
“There are different types of leaders, some players make a noise, others lead by example, some do both, but once in a while it doesn’t do any harm to take a rollicking when you deserve one,” Ole said when speaking about Fernandes.
