- Bruno Fernandes has signed a new four-year contract at Manchester United
- The deal, which runs through until June 2026, has an option of an extra year

- Fernandes, 27, insists it is an ‘honour’ to extend his stay at Old Trafford
Bruno Fernandes has committed his long-term future to Manchester United after putting pen to paper on a new four-year extension at Old Trafford.
Fernandes quickly became one of the club’s most important players after arriving from Sporting Lisbon in 2020, where he has scored 49 goals and provided 39 assists in 117 appearances.
As a result, the Red Devils have moved to tie down the attacking midfielder to fresh terms, with the new deal running through until June 2026 with the option of an extra year.
Fernandes has now doubled his wage and will earn around £240,000 a week at Old Trafford, according to The Athletic.

The 27-year-old revealed that his dream of playing for the Red Devils has become a ‘reality’ and that he was ‘honoured’ to extend his stay at the club.
Bruno Fernandes told the club’s 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 honour.
‘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.’
Although his form has come under more scrutiny of late, Fernandes is seen as a key part of United’s squad as they look to appoint a new permanent manager this summer.
United’s interim boss Ralf Rangnick was delighted to hear that Fernandes has committed his long-term future to the club in his Friday press conference.
Rangnick said: ‘I think that’s very good news for the club, for the fans, the supporters also for Bruno to know he will be here for the next five years, I suppose.
‘There is no doubt he is a very important player for this club and this team. That’s great news, I already congratulated him yesterday after his return from the World Cup Qualifiers. He played very well, scored the most important goals to qualify.’
John Murtough, United’s director of football, heaped praise on Fernandes and labelled him as the ‘ultimate professional’.

‘Bruno’s work-rate, dedication and fantastic attitude are exactly what we want from a Manchester United player.
‘He is the ultimate professional with many fantastic attributes to drive the high standards required to play for this great club.
‘Bruno, like everyone across the football club, remains hugely ambitious and determined to deliver sustained success on the pitch to get us back to challenging for titles.’
