Bruno Fernandes to consider an exit?

There’s plenty of speculation surrounding Bruno Fernandes and some other notable names at the club. With the dismal season that Manchester United have had and with INEOS coming on board to take charge of football operations, many are expecting wholesale changes in the background and with the playing squad.

A few weeks ago, rumours of a possible sale of Marcus Rashford emerged, with suggestions that the club are only open to keeping Kobbie Mainoo, Rasmus Hojlund, and Alejandro Garnacho, as they could reportedly consider offers for the rest of the squad.

Hence, that leaves Bruno Fernandes vulnerable to the act, with the report now suggesting the 29-year-old Manchester United star could open his doors for a departure should the club want him gone. The Portuguese star is one of their top earners and is tied to a long-term deal, which will make things complicated if he were to leave.

When INEOS came on board, Fernandes was eager to stay here and continue his journey under the new management. However, should things go sour in the background, he might leave in the summer. In hindsight, the 29-year-old Manchester United star has been one of their top performers in a dismal season. Still, it has got plenty of criticism following his elevated leadership role at the club and being the captain.

Will Fernandes leave Manchester United?

The chances are there, as per the report, but any exit might seem unlikely at this stage of his career. The first big question around INEOS will be who they might bring in to replace the attacking midfielder. Secondly, things could also depend on whether they make a change of manager, with Ten Hag’s position also in considerable doubt.

Given his current wages and what the club might demand to sell him, the chances of the 29-year-old Manchester United star leaving are slim to none. Moreover, they need a player of his calibre and experience to lead the team in the new era. Hence, any move will prove unlikely for all parties concerned.
