MANCHESTER, ENGLAND (AP) – Bruno Fernandes (AP; pic below) signed a contract extension to stay at Manchester United through at least the 2025-26 season, the Premier League club said yesterday.
The new deal adds only one season to the long-term contract Fernandes signed when he arrived from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020 but includes an option for an additional year. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The 27-year-old Portugal midfielder, who has tallied 49 goals and 39 assists in 117 games with United, is seen as a key part of the club’s future as it looks to hire a permanent manager this summer.
“Even after two years, it still feels amazing to step out at Old Trafford, to hear the fans sing my song and to score in front of the Stretford End,” Fernandes said in the club’s announcement.
“It is a true privilege to wear this shirt and to fight for our incredible club.”
Sixth-place United is four points back of Arsenal in fourth for the final Champions League spot and Leicester.
