Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes has insisted he is happy at the club despite reports linking him with a move to Saudi Arabia.
Fernandes had attracted interest from the Public Investment Fund (PIF), the owners of the Saudi clubs. Even though he is the captain of the club, the performances and character of the midfielder has been criticized often during the last year.
However, the 29-year-old has “thrown into the water” all reports that he will leave “Old Trafford”.
Since Cristiano Ronaldo joined Al-Nassr in January, many big names have joined the Saudi Arabian project. Benzema, Mane, Mahrez and Neymar all left big clubs in Europe, while young players such as Neves and Gabri Veiga took this route as well.
Fernandes hasn’t started in the best possible way this season, but for now he remains committed to the Ten Hag project.
“I am focused on the national team and United. I am happy where I am. At the national team, we had a good time, at Manchester United we didn’t have the start we wanted. I don’t look at rumours. I don’t pay attention to them. Today, it is very easy to spread rumors in the media. I prefer to concentrate on my goals”, said Fernandes in an interview for Sport TV.
Fernandes’ contract with Man United expires in 2026, when he will be 31 years old. If United continue to struggle to keep up with the big teams in Europe, then the Portuguese could decide to move to the Middle East.
