Report: Man United could receive £130m bid and sale would eclipse even Ronaldo’s exit

When reports emerged a few weeks ago suggesting that only a handful of players are safe from the chop at Manchester United, it was no surprise to see one particular name on the list of survivors.

The term “irreplaceable” is not one that is typically used with any degree of realism. However, this feels like one of those infrequent occurrences.

Without a man who consistently ranks at the top of the charts for opportunity generation, how in the world can you move on? A man who has scored 10 goals or more in each of his Manchester United seasons despite not even being a center-forward and who ended up ranking second in Erik ten Hag’s team last season.

A man from the FA Cup final who gave that assist. An unexpected and incredibly well-weighted pass that caught even the cameraman off guard.

How do you replace Bruno Fernandes? Well, that might be a question Man United are forced to answer soon enough.

Manchester United captain wanted by Saudi Arabia

Astronomical offers would undoubtedly be all that would be needed to persuade the Red Devils to capitalise on their Portuguese “Magnifico.” However, the Saudi Pro League focuses in extravagant offerings.

As per Caught Offside, Al Nassr intends to assess Man United’s perseverance by putting up a bid that would surpass Cristiano Ronaldo’s £80 million transfer to Real Madrid in 2009 and make Fernandes the most expensive sell in the club’s history.

According to the source, Ronaldo’s present employers are “seriously considering” a bid that approaches £130 million.

The man who led Erik ten Hag’s team to victory at Wembley a week ago and wrote a moving love letter to the supporters in the Player’s Tribune a few days prior is the one member of the Man United team whose head would require some turning.

According to a July 2023 Fabrizio Romano report, Fernandes “rejected more than two approaches” from the Saudi Pro League in the previous summer. There is a perception that Fernandes’ first preference would be to stay put and assist Man United in returning to the top of the football league, despite recent reports that his agent is courting some of the greatest teams on the continent—Bayer Munich is apparently highly keen.

Will Bruno Fernandes re-unite with Cristiano Ronaldo?

Speaking to A Bola back in March, the £47 million signing from Sporting Lisbon opened up on his discussions with Ineos, brighter days surely on the horizon under the ambitious Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

“I’ve always told the club that I don’t want to be promised that we’re going to be champions because whatever club I go to, I don’t expect to be promised something that they can’t fulfil from the start,” Fernandes said.

“What I’ve always asked for and what I want from the club is for us to be competitive. This year we haven’t been and we don’t have to hide it. The season has been below our expectations, below my expectations, at least.

“And I think the club’s too, because they’re not used to being in these positions. I want to be competitive, I want to compete, I want to win.

I’ve already had a meeting with the new owners,” the skipper added. “They want to meet with the players and have already done so individually, and that was exactly the message I sent.

“I want to stay here. I want to be part of a project that has feet, legs, torso and head, everything that is needed so that we can compete with Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool, which are the clubs that have been in the best shape.”
