Bruno Fernandes Has Opened Up On The News Linking Him To Saudi Arabia

Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes says he’s ‘happy’ at Old Trafford, despite interest from Saudi Arabia.

The 29-year-old has been linked with a big money move to the middle-east, with United reportedly preparing themselves for a bid of around £100m.

Fernandes joined United from Sporting Lisbon in 2020 for a fee of around £47m and he’s been a huge hit at the Theatre of Dreams.

The Portuguese midfielder was made club captain last summer, replacing Harry Maguire.

While Fernandes says he’s unhappy with how the season has started at the club, he says he’s happy to remain at Old Trafford.

Fernandes told Sport TV Portugal as cited by Sports Central: ‘I’m focusing on the national team and United. I’m happy where I am. ‘In the national team, we had some very good times, at Manchester United we didn’t start the way we wanted. I don’t look at rumours. I don’t pay attention to them. ‘Today, it’s very easy to spread rumours in the press. I prefer to concentrate on my goals.’

Fernandes signed a five-year deal with the club in 2021, with his existing deal running until 2026.

However, he has the option for a further 12 months. United would not listen to offers for the midfielder.
