Bruno Fernandes contract: How much does the Man Utd star earn and when does his deal expire?
Bruno Fernandes, Manchester United’s undoubted ace, finds himself in the spotlight over contract negotiations.
Just a year after arriving at the club from Sporting CP, Fernandes is reported by The Sun to be stalling over a new agreement. The reason, according to the paper, is that he is concerned by the club’s future transfer policy.

Fernandes’ influence since arriving at Man Utd has been immense. He has quickly established himself as their go-to player and has already scored 35 goals and created 21 more in just 63 appearances.
Indeed, it seems unlikely that even the 26-year-old might have imagined he would have so quickly become such an integral figure to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans.
Certainly, it seems that way given Fernandes’ wage status in the Man Utd squad.
How much does Bruno Fernandes get paid?
While nailing down an exact wage figure for individual players is near impossible, most reliable sources place Bruno Fernandes’ wage around the £100,000-a-week mark before bonuses. With these included, it is reported that he fetches around £180,000-a-week.
That may seem like an eye-watering figure, yet in the context of the Manchester United squad, it is not nearly so impressive. Indeed, it is believed that he is currently only the seventh-highest paid player on the club’s books.
Indeed, it was thought that Odion Ighalo was on an identical wage during his spell at the club.
It is reported by the Sun that Fernandes’ wage will double to the region of £200,000-a-week if he signs a new contract.
Man Utd player wages 2020/21
|Player||Annual Wage (£m)||Weekly Wage (£)|
|David de Gea||19.5||375,000|
|Donny van de Beek||6.2||120,000|
When does Bruno Fernandes’ contract with Man Utd expire?
Manchester United are under little pressure to get a deal for Bruno Fernandes over the line given that his contract expires in 2025.
With the transfer market deflated, it is unlikely that there is any club out there with the financial muscle to prise him away from Old Trafford currently.
Clearly, having an unhappy Fernandes is not to the benefit of anyone, however.
