Bruno Fernandes has signed a new Manchester United contract which will keep him at the club until June 2026.

Despite some struggles this season, Bruno has largely been a revelation since sealing his long-awaited move to Old Trafford in January 2020. So far he has registered 49 goals and 39 assists from midfield in just 117 games. He has also won the club's player of the year award twice.

His previous contract was set to expire at end of the 2024/25 and it is thought that these fresh terms have been offered to bring his wages in line with what his performances deserve.

90min understands that the new deal will bump Bruno's wages from £250,000 up to £300,000 per week, with talks beginning at the start of the year.

The midfielder told the club's website: "From the moment that I joined Manchester United, I have had a special relationship with the club and our amazing fans. I grew up watching this team, dreaming of getting the chance to play here one day.

“That dream is now a reality and an honour.

“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. It is a true privilege to wear this shirt and to fight for our incredible club.

“There is so much more that I want to achieve here, and I know that is the same for the rest of the squad and staff. More than anything, we want to give the fans the success that they deserve.

“We have shared some great moments over the last years, but the best is yet to come from myself and this team.”

John Murtough, football director, added: “Everyone is well aware of Bruno’s importance to Manchester United. His goals and assists record is phenomenal and he has performed remarkably consistently since he joined the club.

“Bruno’s work-rate, dedication and fantastic attitude are exactly what we want from a Manchester United player. He is the ultimate professional with many fantastic attributes to drive the high standards required to play for this great club.

“Bruno, like everyone across the football club, remains hugely ambitious and determined to deliver sustained success on the pitch to get us back to challenging for titles.”
