Man United have made sorting out new terms for Bruno Fernandes one of their number one goals.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s biggest achievement thus far was bringing Bruno Fernandes to Old Trafford. It goes without saying, our Portuguese Magnifico has almost single-handedly changed our overall outlook.
He’s brought goals, assists, on-field leadership and an insane quality that nobody really expected. We’re super lucky to have him.
Bruno hasn’t yet been here two years and the Old Trafford club are already looking to tie the attacking midfielder down to a new contract. That says it all, really…
According to Fabrizio Romano, United have made a contract extension for the 27-year-old a ‘priority’. As of right now, negotiations about the salary and length of contract are ‘ongoing’ – and have been since July.
Romano also adds that Shaw is next in line for contract discussions, though the club are waiting to see what happens with Paul Pogba first…
As for Bruno, he’s well within his rights to demand a pay-rise that rivals the top earners at this club. I’d say he’s comfortably our most important player at this moment and he deserves to be compensated for that.
I know it’s easy for me to say this, but just give him what he wants. Without Bruno, we’re a far worse team in pretty much every aspect. Just go out there and get it done.
My concern is that Bruno is such a winner, he won’t stick around forever if we continue to struggle when it comes to the business end of tournaments. He wants to win major honours year-in-year-out and while he’s likely enjoying the project that Solskjaer is undertaking right now, that patience will run out sooner than we’d all think.
Hopefully, the lure of more money should be enough to get this deal done sooner rather than later.
