United to reward Fernandes with a new contract

Manchester United are set to reward Bruno Fernandes with a new contract barely a year after he joined the club.

They are keen to dissuade potential suitors, including Barcelona and Real Madrid from making a bid for him and are prepared to increase his wages to £200,000 a week doubling his current money.

Since joining the Premier League side from Sporting Lisbon for £47 million last January, Fernandes has established himself as the club’s most important player, scoring 22 goals and providing 14 assists.

And his value was once again demonstrated to them on Saturday evening when he came off the bench at half-time in their Premier League match with West Ham at the London stadium and, together with Marcus Rashford, helped turn the game around, transforming a one-nil loss into an eventual 3 -1 win.

The 26-yeaar old is currently 11 months into a four and a half-year deal, with United having the option of another year, as they do with most players.
