Man Utd fend off La Liga interest to seal £250,000-per-week contract extension

Bruno Fernandes is set to sign commit his future to Manchester United as he is on the verge of agreeing to a new contract at the club, according to reports.

The 27-year-old is the first name on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team sheet and has impressed supporters since his arrival from Sporting in 2020. Fernandes was United’s top scorer last season, his first full campaign, and is leading the way this year as well.

He is now set to be rewarded with a bumper pay rise, with The Sun reporting that a new deal until 2026 could be announced in the next few weeks despite interest from La Liga.

In the report, it’s claimed Fernandes will earn a whopping £250,000 per week, a substantial raise from his previous terms. Thus, he will become one of the club’s top earners and most will feel it has been deserved.

Tying the influential midfielder down to a new deal once again reflects the near-flawless recruitment since Solskjaer took over in 2018. Fernandes is one of the success stories of United’s change in strategy and the Norwegian manager will be hoping to repeat the trick in upcoming windows.
