Man Utd urged to SELL their best player


Former Liverpool and Aston Villa forward Stan Collymore has urged Manchester United to sell Bruno Fernandes during the upcoming summer transfer window.

Fernandes, 29, is currently the Red Devils’ captain after taking the armband from Harry Maguire in 2023, but Collymore believes the club should look to offload the Portuguese international this summer.

The former Sporting CP attacking midfielder has 15 goals and 11 assists in all competitions this season, however Collymore believes Man Utd should sell him.

The ex-Liverpool striker told CaughtOffside: “Very good player? Yes! Captain material? Absolutely not.

“The fact that he hinted earlier this week that he could be up for a move away tells me that he doesn’t have the stomach for the fight, doesn’t believe in the future project and wants a bit of the easy life – something you just don’t ever get at United.

“For me, along with Paul Pogba, Harry Maguire and Antony he’ll be a poster boy for the era at United where promise was abundant but excuses and not delivering were the reality.

“Sell and move on!”

Bruno Fernandes to leave Man Utd?

Fernandes recently addresses a potential Old Trafford exit, admitting to DAZN Portugal (as per Utd District): “I’m not thinking about other things at the moment.

“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. We could still end the season by winning the cup. After that, we have a very important Euros coming up.

“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.”

According to data analytics experts SciSports, Fernandes is currently Man Utd’s best player. His SciSkill rating of 113.3 is higher than any other player in Erik ten Hag’s squad.
