Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes admires playing in the ‘pure and electrifying’ Brazilian league
Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has expressed his interest in Brazilian football and hinted at the possibility of considering a move to South America in the future.
Since joining United from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020, the Portuguese maestro has been a prominent figure for the club, accumulating 187 appearances with 64 goals and 54 assists in all competitions.
Fernandes extended his stay at Old Trafford last year, committing to the club for a minimum of three more years, with the option to potentially extend his contract for an extra year.
While the 28-year-old is bound to a contract, he reveals that a move to the South American country remains a possibility in the future.
“Whenever I can, I follow it, because I find Brazilian football attractive, electric football, with a lot of quality, joy, very one-on-one. It’s pure football.”
“And I think that now, with the coaches that are there, not only the Portuguese but also Brazilians, are increasingly developing in the tactical part.”
“I don’t really like talking about the distant future, but it’s like I said. It’s attractive football, very interesting. I’m not saying no, because Brazilian football is very attractive, and we never know the future.”
Fernandes seems happy at United and would be eager to achieve a lot more with the club. Although he was unable to help his side taste victory against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, he has been putting in hard work on the pitch.
His commitment is there to see after he signed a new contract, and it has all but shut down any rumours linking the player with a move away from Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag has made the midfielder an important player in his squad. He was recently named the club’s captain for the new season.
With such huge responsibility on his shoulders, he would be inspired to achieve more with his parent club.
Fernandes can live his dream of playing in Brazil like many other players who follow a trend of joining their admired clubs after getting past their prime.

But for now, the Portuguese midfielder looks dedicated to his current club. Given his desire to compete for major European honours with Man United, a move to South America at this point in his career is extremely unlikely.
