Premier League powerhouse Manchester United is expected to undergo major changes in the summer after another disappointing season. Whether the departure of the club’s captain, Bruno Fernandes, will be part of those changes is yet to be determined, according to the Portuguese midfielder himself.

Recent reports indicated that United is looking to part ways with several high-earning players as part of a roster revamp, with Fernandes being mentioned as part of the list. When asked about these rumors during a recent chat with Dazn Portugal, Fernandes said that he will consider his future with the club after he finishes the EURO 2024 campaign with the Portugal national team.

“I don’t have thoughts for other things at the moment. It doesn’t just depend on me,” said Fernandes. “So, if you want me to be very honest, if I have to think about not continuing in the Premier League, it won’t be until after the Euros.”

However, Fernandes indicated that he would like to stay at Old Trafford and thinks United feels the same way.

“A player always has to want to be here, but at the same time, you have to want him to stay. At the moment, I feel there’s that on both sides” he added.

Bruno Fernandes has been one of the best players for Manchester United since joining the club from Sporting in January 2020. He continued to perform at a high level in 2023-24 as well, scoring 15 goals and adding 11 assists in all competitions.

Despite Fernades’ efforts, United failed to find success this season. The Red Devils are currently sitting sixth in the Premier League while previously finishing last in their UEFA Champions League group. They could still partially salvage their season if they can beat Manchester City in the upcoming FA Cup finals.
