Manchester United have officially announced Bruno Fernandes new contract, MySportDab reports.
The midfielder who recently qualified Portugal for the FIFA World Cup has now returned and made his new contract official.
Bruno Fernandes has been instrumental to Manchester United remaining relevant over the past few seasons since coming through from Sporting Lisbon.
The Portuguese have so much presence in the team as he is one of the key players who they have remained committed to keeping longer.
Reports of a potential move away from Old Trafford have surrendered the player since establishing himself in the English Premier League.
An exit is now unlikely as Manchester United just extend his contract until 2026 with an option of making it one year extra when it expires.
This development comes after Paul Pogba has been unable to reach an agreement with his contract running out when the season comes to an end.
They have made sure they don’t go through the same process with Fernandes who they had to make sure his contract got extended before his last season.
The Portugal midfielder has contributed 49 goals and 39 assists in just 117 appearances for Manchester United since joining them.
Bruno Fernandes Statement On Official Website:
“From the moment that I joined Manchester United, I have had a special relationship with the club and our amazing fans.
“I grew up watching this team, dreaming of getting the chance to play here one day.
“That dream is now a reality and an honor.
“Even after two years, it still feels amazing to step out at Old Trafford, to hear the fans sing my song, and to score in front of the Stretford End.
“It is a true privilege to wear this shirt and to fight for our incredible club.
“There is so much more that I want to achieve here, and I know that is the same for the rest of the squad and staff.
“More than anything, we want to give the fans the success that they deserve.
“We have shared some great moments over the last years, but the best is yet to come from myself and this team.”
Manchester United will be resuming their quest to finish amongst the top four that enable them to play Champions League football next season.
