There is no way Bruno Fernandes would leave Manchester United sooner than later, confirms a tier 1 journalist in Fabrizio Romano.
United got battered 6-1 by Tottenham Hotspur in Premier League at Old Trafford earlier this month.
And following that result, there were reports of Bruno Fernandes having totally lost his faith in Manchester United management and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, in particular.
There were also claims that the Portuguese playmaker would make his move to Barcelona as early as the upcoming January transfer window.
However, erasing all doubts, Fernandes came up with a strong message during his latest international duties with Portugal national team.
In a post-match interview, Fernandes strongly said,
“There’s been a lot of speculation about that.
“First it was a discussion with team-mates, as it did not stick, it was a discussion with only one team-mate [Victor Lindelof], as it did not stick now, it is the discussion with Solskjaer.
“I believe it is a way to destabilise the group. What was said is in no way true.
“I was replaced at half-time, it is true, by technical option. The coach told me that the game was almost over and that we would have a lot of games ahead of us. Got it. I was not satisfied but said nothing that could harm the group.”
Now, while speaking to his Here We Go Podcast, Fabrizio Romano added some weight to Fernandes’ comments, claiming that the Portuguese midfielder is happy both with Manchester United as a club and their manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Italy-based transfer expert also denied the talks of him moving to Barcelona in the next summer saying that Fernandes is not moving anywhere.
He also told that a player of Fernandes stature won’t ever make any harsh decision against his manager, stating, “They [Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Bruno Fernandes] are not having any problem [at Manchester United].”
Having joined from Sporting Lisbon for an initial transfer fee of £46.5m in the last January transfer window, Fernandes captained United in their first UEFA Champions League group game against Paris Saint-Germain.
Not only did he score in Paris, but also he placed a captain-esque performance having worn the armband for the first time in a match that United convincingly won 2-1.
Should Harry Maguire remain sidelined with his hamstring issues, we might see the midfield magnifico plying his trades again as a captain against Chelsea on Saturday.
