Bruno Fernandes has confirmed what Manchester United must do to keep him at Old Trafford beyond this summer.

Over the past few weeks, there has been plenty of speculation surrounding Bruno Fernandes and his future at Manchester United.

Fernandes conducted an interview with DAZN where he stated that he would not consider his future until after the summer, explaining that he cannot confirm that he will be staying at United.

However, the player then held talks with the club’s new co-owners about their ambitions, and he has seemingly subsequently decided that he is happy to stay as long as conditions are met: competing for trophies.

“I love to step out at Old Trafford more than anything in the world. I don’t want to leave. This has always been my ultimate dream,” he wrote in a Players’ Tribune article.

“I just want my expectations to fit with the expectations of the club. If you go talk to any fan, they will tell you the same thing. We want to compete for the league. We want to be playing Champions League football. We want to be in cup finals. That is the standard. That is what I want. That is what you all deserve.

“I just want to keep fighting. I want to be here. My family wants to be here.”

Fernandes has also admitted that he has felt the pain of fans this season following multiple poor results.

Frustration. Isn’t that what we all feel? That’s really the only word for this season, I think. If you ask me, or if you ask any United fan, it would be the same,” he said.

“There were so many moments when we won a massive game, and it felt like ‘OK, now we are going to build from this’… and it just never happened. It never fully clicked for us. We were not consistent enough, and we have to be better. For each other, for the club, for our fans.

“Our travelling support has been amazing. You all saw it at Selhurst Park when we lost 4–0, and our fans were still standing and singing the entire match. I was out with an injury, and I had to sit and watch at home, which just drives me crazy.

“I could hear the fans singing, and it just made me wish that I could have been there on the pitch to stand in front of them and applaud them back.”

Fernandes and the United player have a chance to make it up to them by winning the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon.
