After news of a contract extension for Bruno Fernandes circulated on Thursday, Manchester United fans were divided.
Despite his current contract expiring in 2025, the Portuguese has been in talks with the club for some time. On Thursday, reports appeared claiming that talks had reached a stalemate and that an agreement was on the way.
There were indications early this season that Fernandes had put talks on hold until the end of the season, adding to the uncertainty around Old Trafford. The club is also looking for a new permanent manager, with Erik ten Hag being interviewed for the vacant role, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Some Reds fans are perplexed as to why United is extending new contracts to players despite the absence of a permanent manager. Others, meanwhile, are relieved to see a player who has nine goals and 14 assists this season willing to commit his long-term career to United.
The supporters’ reactions to the prospective new deal are as follows.
