Man United are looking for a new midfielder to replace their captain

Manchester United

Despite being the club captain at Old Trafford, Bruno Fernandes faces an uncertain future at Man United and they may need to sign a replacement.

Saudi Pro League side Al-Hilal put an astronomical offer to Fernandes in the winter window and they are expected to make a renewed attempt to sign the midfielder in the summer.

While the Portugal international is a key player for Erik ten Hag’s side, United will have a big decision to make if Al Hilal are willing to offer around £100million.

Asked about his future recently, Fernandes told DAZN Portugal: “Obviously, it doesn’t just depend on me, does it?

“A player always has to want to be here, but at the same time, you have to want him to stay. At the moment, I feel there’s that on both sides.

“I’m not thinking too much about the future, not least because, obviously, this season hasn’t been at the level I’d hoped for, either individually or collectively, so far.

“So, if you want me to be very honest, if I have to think about not continuing in the Premier League, it won’t be until after the Euros because nothing will be able to take my focus away from the FA Cup final and the Euros, as there’s nothing more important than that at the moment.”

Man United wants a better midfielder than Bruno Fernandes

We’ve taken a look at six attacking midfielders that United should target if Fernandes does leave Old Trafford in the summer.

After growing up in Stuttgart, Musiala spent time in the academies of Southampton and Chelsea before moving back to Germany in 2019 at the age of 16 to join Bayern Munich.

He has since made over 150 first-team appearances for Bayern, establishing himself as one of the best young playmakers in the world.

The 20-year-old narrowly missed out on France Football’s Kopa Trophy and the Golden Boy award in 2023 after finishing as runner-up to Jude Bellingham.
