Bruno Fernandes reportedly rejected a substantial offer to join Saudi side Al-Hilal in January. He chose to stay at Manchester United, where he won his first trophy after moving from Sporting CP in January 2020. Fernandes believes in the team’s potential to compete for Premier League and European titles. Despite the offer, he wants to remain at the top level and contribute to the club’s progress.
However, there are concerns that Al-Hilal could make another attempt to sign Fernandes in the upcoming summer. The club, led by manager Jorge Jesus, is dominating the Saudi Pro League and has notable players like Neymar, Ruben Neves, and Aleksandar Mitrovic. Fernandes is under contract with United until 2026, with the option of a one-year extension. Manchester United’s manager, Ten Hag, values Fernandes as a key player in his plans, highlighting his importance to the team’s performance this season.
The focus is now on maintaining control in the upcoming matches to avoid counter-attacks.
