The Portuguese midfielder is said to be preparing to sign a 5-year extension of MU, joining the top salary at Old Trafford.
According to O Jogo, negotiations between MU and Bruno Fernandes’ agent have been ‘intensified’ recently and the new signing is about to take place.
The above source said that Bruno Fernandes will extend MU for 5 years (until the summer of 2027), earning the same salary as Paul Pogba – about £290,000/week, which is more than double the current level (£100,000/week).
Bruno Fernandes joined MU in January 2020 and immediately made a mark and confirmed an important role at Old Trafford.
He proved to be one of the most successful signings of Red Devils in the post-Sir Alex era. The Portuguese midfielder has scored 49 goals and 39 assists in 117 appearances for MU.
That’s why the Red Devils leader wants to soon ‘reward’ him with a new contract to increase his salary compared to the initial modest £100,000/ week.
According to O Jogo, despite being disappointed that MU went through a blank season again, Bruno Fernandes still has faith that the club will come back and fight for the title.
