Man United may have to give Bruno Fernandes a fresh deal, in order to convince him to stay with the Red Devils.

Manchester United are undergoing major change at present, both on and off the field. The Old Trafford club, now run by INEOS and Sir Jim Ratcliffe, are trying to clear the decks, effectively hitting the reset button.

It has already been stated that this will take multiple years, rather than there being a quick fix this summer that’ll see United return to the top.

Unfortunately, some players don’t have that sort of time available. Bruno Fernandes feels like someone who falls into that category, hence, he is being linked with a move away.

As a result, United could have to cough up in order to keep ahold of their most important player.

According to the Daily Star, United could be ‘forced’ into handing a new contract to the star, in order to keep him at Old Trafford.

Fernandes’ current deal runs until 2026, meaning United could realistically keep ahold of the attacking midfielder for at least the next two seasons. However, a lot can be said for a player’s happiness. If he’s not content here in Manchester, what’s the point in keeping him around?

It’s stated that Bruno has seen the likes of Marcus Rashford, Raphael Varane and Casemiro all handed bigger contracts than his, while the next deal will be the last big payday in his career. Effectively, our Portuguese Magnifico holds all the cards.

Let’s be honest, if any player at Old Trafford deserves big money right now, it’s Bruno. He’s by far and away our best and most important player. United have to do whatever they can to ensure he signs a new deal, effectively ensuring that the rest of his prime years are spent at the Theatre of Dreams.
