Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, had reportedly asked the club to push for a transfer if the Super League plans progressed.

Ever since Bruno has joined, he has been the talisman for the Red Devils. In January 2020, Man Utd went into a transition when the ex-Sporting player signed an initial £46.6million deal.

For record, the Portuguese star has contributed 44 goals and 29 assists in 91 appearances.

The Super League more like the “Money League”

Earlier this year, the plans involving the Super League were introduced, with Real Madrid and FC Barcelona at the heart of it. The Super League had big clubs joining in, agreeing to the deals and pushing forward for one big league.

The league proposed rules that are against the ethics and hierarchy of “competition” in football, further enraging fans. A storm broke out, as fans took to the internet to retaliate against the abuse of power.

Many professional footballers including Kevin De Bruyne, Jordan Henderson, etc., came out strongly and spoke against the idea with many threatening to boycott their clubs. In no time the plans of having one “Giant League” were were being thrown out the window and clubs slowly started withdrawing their agreements.

Bruno’s hot take on Manchester United’s board during Super League talks

Man Utd could have lost their main man one year after his joining. Fernandes had threatened the board to leave the club if they continued to agree with the Super League plans. The Portugal international had made pretty clear that he was totally against the Super League plans.

The Athletic reported that Fernandes joined teammate Luke Shaw in speaking out about the proposed plans. The Man Utd duo were claiming that Ed Woodward treated the players like ‘children’ and ‘assets’.

With the Super League a talk of the past, Bruno Fernandes and Manchester United positively look forward to getting the Red Devils back to where they belong – top of the Premier League.
