Fernandes ‘happy’ at Man United amid Saudi links

Bruno Fernandes insists he is happy at Manchester United amid reports of interest from the Saudi Pro League in the midfielder.

Fernandes has been linked with a big-money move to the Saudi Pro League this week, with reports from Spanish publication Fichajes having claimed several Saudi sides are keen to prise the Portugal international from Old Trafford.


Fernandes has been one of the most consistent performers in the Premier League since signing for the Red Devils, for who he has scored 47 goals and provided 35 assists in 136 league appearances.

The 29-year-old was named as club captain during the summer with Erik ten Hag selecting Fernandes as a replacement for Harry Maguire.

Despite a challenging start to the campaign for the Red Devils, Fernandes has insisted that he is happy with life at the club and concentrating on achieving success with his current side.

“Being coveted is always good, regardless of the league and the club, but my focus is on the national team and Manchester United, I’m happy where I am,” he told a press conference while on international duty with Portugal.

“In the national team, we are in a very good moment. At Manchester United, we didn’t start the way we wanted, but I don’t think about the long term.

“I don’t look much at market rumours, they’re things I’ve never wanted to see. Until the moment something concrete comes to me, I don’t care what I see. It’s very easy for rumours to spread in the press. I prefer to be focused on my goals.”
