Manchester United’s contract talks with Bruno Fernandes are ‘not at a standstill’ despite reports to the contrary in England.

That’s according to O Jogo, who insist there has been no breakdown in talks to extend the Portuguese star’s stay at Old Trafford.

They explain that despite Fernandes having a contract until 2025, that does not ‘invalidate’ talks to extend his stay.

Indeed, the two parties are in ‘negotiations’ about an extension that would also see Fernandes enjoying a wage increase.

According to O Jogo’s information, Manchester United and the player have been negotiating for around a month on a deal that would see Fernandes move to a level that would be ‘very close’ to Paul Pogba’s current salary.

In other words, the negotiations are not at a ‘standstill’ as has been mentioned in England. In fact, to the contrary, talks seem to be progressing well.

That will come as good news for Manchester United fans who, despite Fernandes having a contract with three years remaining on it, may have been a little worried reading reports over the last week or so.
