Bruno's decision is clear, he wants to stay at Red Devils and win something."

There is another story behind Bruno Fernandes, who is almost certain to become Red Devils' captain for the 2023/2024 season. It turned out that Bruno had been tempted to play in Saudi Arabia, but was turned down flatly. Previously it was reported, Harry Maguire would no longer be the captain of the Man United team for next season. Player statements and official releases from the club have confirmed this. While waiting for the official captain appointment, news circulated that Bruno would be the team captain. Manager Erik ten Hag has given his blessing in this regard.

And of course, this would not have happened if it turned out that the Portuguese star midfielder had been tempted by a fantastic offer from a Saudi Arabian club. The news was reported by journalist Fabrizio Romano according to him, he spoke to The United Stand about the Utd player's situation. "A few months ago, at the end of May, several Saudi Arabian clubs approached Bruno Fernandes with crazy offers of money," he said. "Bruno's decision is clear, he does not want to move and he wants to stay at Manchester United and win something."

Bruno's decision was influenced by his future at Man United. The player seems to have known earlier that he would be appointed as the new team captain. This plan made Bruno believe that his career at Man United had gone up a level. He also firmly rejected the offer from the Saudi Arabian club. "He feels his project at Manchester United is one step further. He deserves such an important status, which is team captain for Manchester United," said Romano. Bruno's current contract is still long at Man United. The Portugal national team player will still defend the Red Devils until 2026. The contract was just renewed in April 2022. This new contract cannot be separated from his impressive performance in every season since he was brought in midway through the 2019/2020 season.

Bruno was brought in from Sporting Lisbon with a transfer fee of 65 million.
