Bruno Fernandes: What Does the Man Utd Captain’s Future Look Like Ahead of the Summer Transfer Window?

Bruno Fernandes told Sky Sports He will leave Man Utd “if the club doesn’t want me” amid speculation over his future.

Following Man Utd’s 3-2 win over Newcastle on Wednesday, Fernandes gave a somewhat cryptic update on his future to Sky Sports.

The Portugal international has two years left on his contract at Old Trafford but has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich and Saudi Arabia in the summer.

Fernandes told Sky Sports“I feel like the club wants me to be part of the future, so as I always said, I don’t want to be a player that the club doesn’t want.”

“If they don’t want me for any reason, I’ll leave, but if they want me, I’ll stay.”

Erik ten Hag was then seen dragging Fernandes away from the interview.

Speaking at his post-match press conference, the Man Utd manager added: “No, the club are keen to keep Bruno. There’s no question about that, I think.”

“I have to watch the interview but as far as I know he loves Manchester United.”

“He always does his best. He is a role model – he plays even with injuries. He loves football, but he wants to win.”

Analysis: Man Utd don’t want to leave Fernandes

Melissa Reddy, Sky Sports News senior reporter:

“There was never a point where Manchester United questioned Bruno Fernandes’ commitment or had any doubts about his desire to stay because he is passionate about helping the club get back to the top.”

“The captain had told INEOS this in March when they met with him to outline their plans to return United to a domestic and European powerhouse, initially by improving their organizational structure.”

“There appeared to be a consensus between the club and its captain – until recent reports suggested that United would be flexible and listen to offers for any player this summer, apart from the young talent they could develop.”

“Bruno and his representatives therefore questioned United’s commitment to him and arranged a meeting with the club’s management.”

“He was convinced of his importance by Sir Dave Brailsford and Jason Wilcox.

“United’s financial position, which puts them in the sell-to-buy category, means they would have to think about this if huge offers come in for much of the squad.”

“That’s why Bruno repeated it again Sky Sports on Wednesday night: “If they don’t want me for some reason, I’ll go, but if they want me, I’ll stay.”

“United do not want him to leave and also understand that the cost of replacing a player – who, in Erik ten Hag’s own words, ‘carries the team’ – is likely to exceed what they could get for him.”

Former Man Utd captain Wayne Rooney has urged the club to build a team around Fernandes – but says most of the remaining players should be sold.

“You have to build the team around Bruno [Fernandes]“He is the only player with quality and fighting spirit,” said Rooney Sky Sports. “[I’d keep] the young players. And then all the other players, get rid of them.

“It has to be a massive eviction. This won’t happen in a year, but in the next few years.”

After a draw against Bournemouth, Jamie Redknapp said Bruno Fernandes cared more about the club than most of his Manchester United teammates

After a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth in April – in which Fernandes scored both Man Utd goals – Jamie Redknapp said: “Fernandes has received a lot of criticism from people and I get some of that too. But I also think it’s unfair.”

“I see a player who really cares. Sometimes there are little things and you call out your players, but he is the type of player you want to build your team around. He’s a player, he makes things happen.”

“The reason for the frustration is that people don’t care as much as he does. It’s like an epidemic in the club. Do people care? Are they doing enough? Are they going into tackles?”

“Fernandes does it and sometimes puts himself in situations he shouldn’t. But he cares about the club, the team, he got his team back into the game today.”
