Manchester United skipper Bruno Fernandes is allegedly thinking about what lies ahead at the club. The 29-year-old has been at Old Trafford for four and a half years, joining from Sporting Lisbon in 2020. The Portugal international, regarded as being among Erik ten Hag's go-to guys, is expected to make the forthcoming FA Cup final versus Manchester City his 'final performance' with the Red Devils.

According to The Sun, Fernandes has attracted attention from Saudi Arabia, as has teammate midfielder Casemiro. Al-Nassr, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, is said to be among the favourites in the hunt for Casemiro, although Al-Hilal and Al-Ittihad are also interested in the Manchester United captain.

INEOS are anticipated to listen to bids for a number of Ten Hag's players over the summer, with just Alejandro Garnacho, Kobbie Mainoo, and Rasmus Hojlund thought to have been safe from a sale.

United have received no hint that their skipper is discontent at Old Trafford and does not represent among the players who they are deliberately attempting to unload. The idea of losing out on Europe for the following campaign is not likely to dissuade the Manchester United captain, who has another two years left on his current contract.

Bruno Fernandes hoping to be fit for final few games

The midfielder has 15 goals in 45 appearances in all competitions this season, but failed to make United's last two games due to injury. Fernandes is pushing to be ready for Wednesday's trip to Newcastle United, where Erik ten Hag's side is fighting for European qualifying.

The Red Devils are currently three points behind Newcastle and Chelsea, and a victory over Eddie Howe's side would place United in a great position to secure a European berth in the season's final game at Brighton. If their attempts to qualify through the league fail, United may earn a Europa League spot by defeating Manchester City in the final of the FA Cup on May 25.
