"From the moment I joined Manchester United, I have had a special relationship with the club and the people. I grew up watching this team, dreaming of having the opportunity to play here one day. Now, that dream is a reality and an honor," said Bruno Fernandes after the renewal was confirmed on the club's website.
The Portuguese also highlighted the opportunity to play at Old Trafford as a host. "Even after two years, it still feels amazing to go out on the pitch, hear the fans sing my song, and score in front of the Stretford End. It's a real privilege to wear this shirt and fight for this incredible club," added the 27-year-old, who has registered 49 goals and 39 assists in just 117 appearances for the three-time European champions.
The best of the team since his arrival
Fernandes has generated more scoring chances than any other player on the team since his January 2020 arrival from Sporting Portugal. "There is a lot more I want to achieve here, and I know this also runs for the rest of the team. More than anything, we want to give the fans the success they deserve. We have shared great moments," the player sentenced.
"Everyone is aware of how important Bruno is to us. His goals and assists record is phenomenal, and he has performed remarkably well since his arrival at the club. Bruno, like everyone else at the club, remains very ambitious, and is determined to achieve success on the pitch so that we can get back into title contention," said John Murtough, Manchester United's Director of Football.
How much will Bruno Fernandes earn?
According to The Athletic, the Portuguese doubled his salary with the new contract he received from the English club, as he will now earn £240,000 per week, although it is much less than Cristiano Ronaldo (£480,000) and David de Gea (£375,000), the two highest-paid.
