Bruno Fernandes is close to agreeing a new deal at Manchester United worth a whopping £200,000 a week.
The 26-year-old’s agent Miguel Pinto arrived in Manchester earlier this week to negotiate new terms for the Portuguese that would double his current wages, according to The Mirror.
Fernandes has been a revelation since joining the Red Devils in January last year. An ever-present in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first team, the midfielder has scored 28 goals in competitions this season, and provided 17 assists.
