Bruno Fernandes leading by example again, if you believe the reports.
The Portugal international has transformed United’s fortunes since arriving in Manchester a year ago.
Since then, Fernandes has scored 24 goals and registered 17 assists in the Premier League with his latest strike coming from the penalty spot in the Manchester derby.
Questions were being asked of Fernandes in the lead up to derby because critics didn’t feel as though he was performing in big games. That wasn’t the case on Sunday against City.
And The Sun claim that Fernandes has ‘demanded assurances’ from the Manchester United hierarchy ‘before he commits to a new long-term deal’. That seems fair. Fernandes has seen how far this team has come with his addition, and now he will want to club to bring in more better players to compete for trophies.
The Sun suggest Fernandes could earn a new ‘double-your-money £200,000-a-week five-year contract’ at Old Trafford.
Fernandes allegedly wants to know there is a commitment in the boardroom to do what it takes to get United back on top of the Premier League and competing for the biggest honours in European football.
Isn’t that what every United fan wants?
