We will talk about Bruno
Bruno will now draw £240,000 a week, more than twice his previous wage of £100k per week. The club made an official announcement on April 1st, 2022. It is no mystery that Bruno has taken the league by storm. He has justified his transfer amount since his highly drawn out transfer from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020. Bruno dazzled empty stadiums with his exceptional play for most of his first few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, he now receives thunderous applause from fans at Old Trafford. United’s progress since his arrival has been very encouraging. Although there hasn’t been any silverware to show for it, there have been encouraging signs. Fernandes’s desire and passion coupled with excellent vision and work rate made him a fan-favorite and guaranteed starter in no-time.
While his previous wages seemed criminally low, Bruno has well and truly deserved a pay bump. With 88 goal contributions in 117 appearances, Fernandes has been efficient all over the pitch. He has been United’s top scorer since January 2020 with nearly 50 goals. Although a little wasteful and ambitious at times, Fernandes has embodied the spirit of a United player throughout. He has also often carried the club on his back through tough times. In a partnership with Sancho and Ronaldo, Bruno has shown moments of sheer brilliance in recent games. With several players scheduled to depart the club, Bruno’s role could evolve further. Managerial changes will also impact how Bruno performs in the upcoming seasons, with multiple hats in the ring. If nothing else, maybe the fat checks will motivate him more! A thorough professional, Bruno Fernandes is here to stay! What a player! A fan favorite!
