Bruno Fernandes has celebrated his new contract at Manchester United by embarrassing Fred in training.
United finally confirmed the Portuguese midfielder’s new deal on Friday having waited until Fernandes had returned from international duty to make the announcement. His contract at Old Trafford will now run until 2026.
After signing on the dotted line, Fernandes said: “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.” His delight over the new deal is clear to see and it appears his performances in training are as sharp as ever, even if it is at the expense of his teammates.
During a game of rondos at Carrington, Fernandes received the ball. With Fred closing him down quickly, the 27-year-old megged the central midfielder, leaving Fred in a heap and the Portuguese player in hysterics.
