Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes said he will stay at Old Trafford as long as he is wanted as speculation mounts over the Portuguese midfielder's future.

Fernandes, 29, has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich in recent days with the Red Devils set to miss out on Champions League football next season.

United may be forced to sell to provide the funds necessary for a major overhaul of the squad in the summer and remain compliant with Premier League financial sustainability rules.

"I will be here till when the club wants me and the club wants me to be a part of the future," said Fernandes, whose contract runs till 2026.
"If for some reason they don't want me, then I will go."

Fernandes played his part as United kept their hopes of European qualification via the Premier League alive with a 3-2 win over Newcastle on Wednesday.

Erik ten Hag's men still sit eighth in the table, but could climb above Newcastle into seventh if they better the Magpies' result on the final day of the season.

United visit Brighton on Sunday, while Newcastle travel to Brentford.

"It has been a tough season. The table shows that and we are all aware of that," added Fernandes.
"The fans have been amazing for us and we had to do something "We have been trying but results don't show that. We have been working hard and everyone has been giving their best it is not enough and we have to do more."

Ten Hag justifies Bruno's captaincy

Sports Brief previously reported that ten Hag justified selecting Fernandes as captain after Manchester United announced that he had officially replaced Harry Maguire.

The Dutch manager said the midfielder is a leader by example and an inspiration to other players, hence his selection for the role, but admitted he needed others to succeed.
