Report: Bruno Threatened To Leave Man Utd

It has reportedly been revealed that Bruno Fernandes, one of Manchester United's most-loved players, threatened to leave the club a few months ago. Here is why.

'We Are Hearing 'Ronaldo Is Unhappy' Too Much'

When the news arose that 12 teams in Europe had formed a breakaway competition, known as the European Super League, a few months back, fans and players alike came out in droves to voice their concerns.

United were said to be among six of the tournament's founders, a decision that supporters were infuriated by, and now it appears that certain first-team stars were just as disappointed in the club.

According to The Athletic, Fernandes was among the players to take the issue up with the Red Devils' hierarchy and was so angry that he was prepared to leave. The star midfielder was believed to feel aggrieved by the idea that the Super League would contain a no-relegation element.

The publication reported that the 27-year-old had made his feelings and intentions clear with the board, as did the likes of England internationals Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford.

United did eventually formally pull out of the European Super League plans, although it is a concept that is reportedly still being kept alive by Barcelona and Real Madrid presidents Joan Laporta and Florentino Perez.

Since joining the 20-time English champions in January 2020, Fernandes has contributed with 44 goals and 31 assists across all competitions.
