Bruno Fernandes’ future at Man United ‘depends’ on three key factors, says Fabrizio Romano

The future of Bruno Fernandes at Manchester United depends on several key factors after Barcelona and Bayern Munich approached the midfielder.

That is according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who has clarified that nothing has been decided despite reports emerging of those major European clubs chasing the United captain.

Fernandes, 29, had an excellent individual campaign last term despite the club’s difficulties. He assisted the winning goal in the FA Cup final against Manchester City and managed 28 goal contributions across the season.

The Portuguese player explained that he wants to stay at Old Trafford as long as his ambitions are being matched by the ownership.

“There’s been a lot written again about the future of Bruno Fernandes at Manchester United, with the Portuguese press claiming that there have been some contacts with both Barcelona and Bayern Munich, and that approaches could come soon,” began Romano on his Daily Briefing.

“There will inevitably be a lot written about this, so I wanted to clarify my current understanding of the situation here.

“The reality is that Fernandes’ agent Miguel Pinho has met with some European top clubs last week. Contacts took place, but the player remains focused on Man United, and his exit is not something decided at this point.”

Fernandes will focus on Euro 2024 this summer with Portugal, and then he will likely clarify his future once and for all.

Romano has added that there will be several key aspects to this, with the future of Erik ten Hag being one and what INEOS present to the player in upcoming meetings another.

“It will also depend on Man United’s new project, what happens with the manager, what they will ‘present’ to Bruno in new meeting,” the Italian journalist revealed.

“It’s a stand-by moment between Fernandes and Man United, waiting to make final decision with a new contract for the player also being a possibility in case he decides to stay.”
