Bruno Fernandes set to sign new Man Utd contract – Fabrizio Romano

Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes will put pen-to-paper on a new contract in the coming days, reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano claims.

The Portugal international has been a superb signing for the Red Devils. He has bagged 49 goals and 39 assists from just 117 appearances across all competitions.

His form has been inconsistent this campaign, but the board are prepared to reward him for his excellent contribution since arriving from Sporting two years ago.

According to Romano, Fernandes is on the cusp of putting pen-to-paper on a new deal. The club may follow up Fernandes’ renewal by holding contract talks with Luke Shaw.

Our view:

Fernandes has registered nine goals and 14 assists for the Red Devils this campaign, but most of his goal contributions came during the first half of the season.

Similar to several of his United teammates, he has struggled to convert his chances in the final third this year, but this does not diminish his importance.

He is currently the club’s most creative player in attack. Jadon Sancho has peaked lately, but the Portuguese has been a dependable performer over a long stretch.

United have gone five seasons without lifting a trophy, but Fernandes believes the glory days after not far off. It appears a formality before he extends his stay.

Fernandes will be pivotal for United after the international break as they look to reduce the four-point deficit to Arsenal in the pursuit of the final Champions League spot.

The club may need to win all of their remaining nine games to do so. They face a tricky challenge against Leicester City this weekend. The Foxes have won the last three meetings.
