He is a 42-cap Portugal international and has helped the country win the Nations League in 2019. United are at the spot in the Premier League. He will be three points behind Tottenham in fourth. They have six league games in the season. The games will be against Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Brentford, Brighton and Crystal Palace.

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,” said Fernandes after he signed his new contract.
“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.”

“He is the ultimate professional with many fantastic attributes to drive the high standards required to play for this great club. Bruno, like everyone across the club, remains hugely ambitious and determined to deliver sustained success on the pitch to get us back to challenging for titles.”
Fernandes is going to the train with the rest of Ralf Rangnick’s squad on Monday. The crash happened on the night of the United’s huge Premier League clash with Liverpool. The midfielder recently signed a five-year contract after he contributed the nine goals and six assists in the campaign.
