Bruno Fernandes wants assurances over Manchester United’s transfer plans before signing a new deal, according to reports.
The Portuguese midfielder has made a huge impact since he moved to United just over a year ago, with 35 goals and 21 assists in 63 matches.
United are looking to reward Fernandes with a new deal and are keen for the former Sporting Lisbon star to sign a new five-year contract worth around £200,000 per week.
But according to The Sun, Fernandes wants to know what United’s intentions are in the transfer market before he signs a new deal.
The report claims that Fernandes wants to know if United are intent on strengthening the team in order to win the Premier League and challenge in Europe.
But speaking last week, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer warned United supporters that they will not see several new arrivals this summer.
‘There’s going to be less transfers happening in the world of football with all these changes,’ said Solskjaer.

‘The pandemic is definitely affecting everyone in football, the lack of finances, it’s affected everyone. ‘All clubs in the world are going through the same situation so it’s no different for other clubs than for us.’
United are in the market for a new centre-back and may also need to strengthen their attack if Edinson Cavani leaves at the end of the season.
Earlier this week, Cavani’s father claimed that the veteran is keen to return to South America.’ Luis Cavani said: ‘My son does not feel comfortable in England and wants to be close to the family again.
‘Edinson is going to end up playing in South America. ‘I want Edinson to play in a team that fights for something important. ‘Edinson had many conversations with Juan Roman Riquelme [Boca’s vice-president] and he would like to play for Boca.’
