Bruno Fernandes has signed a new long-term contract with Manchester United that will keep the midfielder at Old Trafford until at least 2026.

The Portugal international has been a transformative figure since arriving at United from Sporting Clube in January 2020 for an initial fee of £47million (€55m). The 27-year-old still had three and a half years to run on his original deal, with the option to add a further year, but United have moved to extend those terms. While his new deal sees Fernandes commit to United four another four and a half years, the club has once again retained the right to increase that by an additional 12 months.

Fernandes' figures

Fernandes has made 117 appearances for United since making his debut in February 2020, scoring 49 goals and assisting 39 more in all competitions. The former Sampdoria star's 88 direct goal involvements over that period has been bettered by only five players in Europe's top five leagues. Indeed, Fernandes ranks first among United players in terms of goals (35), assists (25) and chances created (201) in the Premier League since he arrived.

The new deal is reported to be worth £240,000 a week, which is a significant increase on Fernandes' previous salary.
