Man Utd news: Bruno Fernandes fully focused on end of season and not United future

Must read

Captain Bruno Fernandes says he has not thought of leaving Manchester United, is concentrating fully on the remainder of the season and will not give any consideration about his club future until after this summer’s European Championships.

Earlier this week, BBC Sport’s chief football news reporter Simon Stone reported United are willing to listen to offers for virtually all their first-team squad this summer, but Fernandes is not believed to be one of them.

It is understood the Portugal midfielder, who has been with United for more than four years after joining from Sporting Lisbon, would have to be the subject of a major offer for them to let him leave.

Fernandes spoke to DAZN Portugal and, in an interview translated by BBC Sport, said that he “has not in this moment thought about other things [moving].”

He continued: “Obviously this doesn’t depend just on me. A player always has to want to be here, but at the same time, they [the club] have to want him to stay here too.

“At the moment, I feel that is the case on both sides.

“I don’t think much about the future because obviously this season was not at the level that I wanted, both on individual and collective levels. We can still finish this season by winning the FA Cup.

“Soon after this we have the European Championships and that is really important to us. Because of this, if something happens where I have to think about not continuing in the Premier League, then it will only be after the Euros. Nothing will take away my focus from the FA Cup final, and the Euros, because there is nothing more important than this at this moment.”
