Manchester United have an agreement in place with Bruno Fernandes over a new five-year contract, according to Fabrizio Romano.
The Lowdown: Summer shake-up at Man Utd
It has once again been a campaign to forget at Old Trafford, with all eyes now on next season and a summer shake-up.
Ten Hag at Old Trafford?
Yes, get him in!
No, we can do better!
Fernandes isn’t one of those, but it looks as if United chiefs have been hard at work in regards to extending his deal, which currently runs until 2025.
The Latest: Romano’s update on Fernandes
Romano, who revealed that there had been a ‘breakthrough’ in talks on Thursday, provided an update on Saturday morning.
He said that a new contract will be ‘valid for the next five years’ and that Fernandes have ‘already accepted’ the proposal, tweeting:
“Bruno Fernandes new contract with Manchester United will be valid for the next five years. Bruno has already accepted – it’s matter of time to complete the paperworks and sign. Agreement in place as revealed days ago.”
The Verdict: Good move
Even though it hasn’t been a memorable campaign for the Red Devils, Fernandes has still impressed on an individual level. The 27-year-old has contributed to 23 goals in 37 games and has been the club’s best-rated performer in the Premier League among players who have made two or more appearances. [WhoScored]
He leads the way when it comes to key passes per game and averages a match rating of 7.13/10, so a new long-term deal appears to be a shrewd move as United look to the future.
