PREMIER - Bruno Fernandes 'close' to Man United contract decision
Bruno Fernandes is reportedly close to signing a £250,000-per-week new deal with Manchester United, having been inspired by the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portugal star has been linked with Real Madrid and Barcelona amid speculation over his future since United signed Ronaldo last month.
There have been questions raised over how compatible the two players are, with Fernandes having not thrived at international level in the same way as he has with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.
The midfielder dismissed such concerns in an interview following United's 4-1 thrashing of Newcastle on Saturday, insisting: "Good players can always play well together."
As reported by Mirror, now Fernandes is closing in on a huge pay rise, having been persuaded to extend his contract by United's huge investment this summer in Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho.
