Manchester United marked Cristiano Ronaldo’s homecoming with a 4-1 win over Newcastle United at Old Trafford. The Portuguese scored a brace, while Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard also found the back of the net to propel the Red Devils to the top of the Premier League table.
Manchester United are currently working on a new contract for a Portuguese midfielder, who has been on fire since joining the club. The Red Devils have identified an alternative to Declan Rice.
On that note, let’s take a look at the major Manchester United transfer stories from 11 September 2021.
Manchester United working on contract extension for Bruno Fernandes
Manchester United are working on a new contract for Bruno Fernandes, according to The Express via O Jogo. The Red Devils are desperate to tie the Portuguese, who has evolved into one of their most important players, to a new deal. Contrary to rumors doing the rounds, negotiations are progressing well.
Bruno Fernandes has lifted spirits at Manchester United since joining the club in January 2020. He has transformed the Red Devils into title challengers and is one of the finest midfielders in Europe right now.
The Portuguese also played a pivotal role in convincing his countryman Cristiano Ronaldo to return to Old Trafford and the Premier League giants are ready to reward him for his efforts.
Manchester United are preparing to offer Bruno Fernandes a wage hike on his new contract. The Portuguese will earn close to the £290,000 weekly salary currently pocketed by Paul Pogba, making him one of the highest earners at the club.
Bruno Fernandes has no intentions of leaving Old Trafford any time soon, but the Red Devils are eager to ensure that he stays at the club for as long as possible.
Red Devils identify Boubacar Kamara as Declan Rice alternative
Manchester United have identified Boubacar Kamara as the ideal alternative to Declan Rice, according to Sport Witness. The Red Devils were planning to sign a defensive midfielder this summer, with the Englishman on the shortlist along with Ruben Neves and Eduardo Camavinga.
However, the Premier League giants failed to complete a deal for any of the aforementioned stars.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to bring Rice to Old Trafford and Manchester United are expected to return for the player next summer. However, West Ham United’s £100m price tag poses a problem for the Red Devils, who have identified Boubacar Kamar as a cheaper alternative.
