Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes has expressed his contentment with staying at Old Trafford, despite receiving interest from Saudi Arabia.

Interest from Saudi Arabia

There have been reports of a potential big-money move to the Middle East for the 29-year-old midfielder, with Manchester United preparing for a bid of around £100m.

Successful Stint at Manchester United

Fernandes joined Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon in 2020 for a fee of approximately £47m and has since become a key player for the club. He was appointed as the club captain last summer, replacing Harry Maguire.

Commitment to Old Trafford

Despite expressing his dissatisfaction with the team’s performance this season, Fernandes has affirmed his happiness at remaining at Old Trafford. In an interview with Sport TV Portugal, he stated, “I’m focusing on the national team and United. I’m happy where I am. In the national team, we had some very good times, at Manchester United we didn’t start the way we wanted. I don’t look at rumours. I don’t pay attention to them. Today, it’s very easy to spread rumours in the press. I prefer to concentrate on my goals.
