MU is about to lose another 9 million pounds for Bruno Fernandes

The contract of the Portuguese midfielder has many terms that make the United have to spend more money. According to A Bola, Man United will have to pay an additional £ 4.5 million for Sporting Lisbon after Bruno Fernandes has reached the 20-goal mark.

Bruno Fernandes is an important factor in the MU team

MU will also have to pay an additional £ 4.5 million for Sporting if they win tickets to the Champions League next season. Even, the total transfer fee of Bruno can be up to 67 million if he won the Premier League championship and the Golden Ball title in the MU shirt.

After 36 rounds in the Premier League 2019/20, MU is ranked 5th with 62 points, equal to Leicester but played less than 1 match. Therefore, if you win the reception of West Ham, the coach and coach Ole Solskjaer will occupy the 4th position in the rankings.

Bruno moved to United from Sporting in January 2020 with a £ 42 million contract. In Old Trafford’s jersey, he scored 9 goals and 8 assists after 18 appearances in all competitions.

After a long time of sublimation, MU returned to the ground when drawing Southampton with the harsh reality. It is they were not good enough to enter the top 4 and win tickets to the Champions League.

With 11 unbeaten matches including 7 victories, MU is the team with the best performance in the Premier League since the beginning of February. But that is not enough to help “Reds” into the top 4 in the Premier League race.

That is a big paradox for the Old Trafford team. Performance on the field and the newspaper turned “Red Devils” into the world’s strongest club, but in fact, they will have to play in the Europa League next season if they maintain their current position.

The key to the success of MU’s last time was Bruno Fernandes. The Portuguese midfielder arrived and immediately made a difference with his superior expertise and leadership.

He set a number of records, surpassing even the best legends in history such as Cantona, Van Nistelrooy, Rooney, Ronaldo, and won the title of “Player of the Month” of the Premier League for 2 consecutive months. Before and after Fernandes, MU are two completely different teams.

The paradox lies here. Because of MU’s impression of having Fernandes too big, the fans (or the MU players themselves) seem to forget how “the Red Devils” had the first half of the season disappointed.

The kind action of MU and Liverpool when Premier League is postponed

MU and Liverpool took the lead in kind action when the Premier League postponed the end of April because of Covid-19.

Premier League 2019/20 is suspended until April 30

The Covid-19 epidemic is crippling world football as most tournaments have been postponed to ensure public health. Recently, the Premier League organizers have agreed to postpone the tournament until the end of April instead of the April 3 milestone as originally expected. This decision was made after a stakeholder meeting on March 19.

Delaying the tournament for more than a month not only makes fans wait but also creates many other consequences. The easiest are those who make a match. Security, driving, sanitation staff, medical staff of the stadiums in the Premier League are in unemployment. They are usually seasonal workers and only get paid for the matches they take place.

According to a Independent UK investigation, these employees receive only about £ 8.21 per hour of work. With the tournament delayed until April 30, the risk of “starvation” of these employees is great. The same situation is experienced in the United States in the US professional basketball (NBA) teams.

The kind action of the football clubs

The clubs really want to help but cannot afford the cost to seasonal workers. Therefore, the French shadow star Rudy Gobert (Utah Jazz) has donated $ 200,000 to the employees of the stadium to cover life during temporarily unemployed.

However, the situation in England is somewhat brighter with nice gestures from the clubs. Independent newspaper survey with 20 clubs currently playing in the Premier League about the ability to pay for the staff of the stadium during the time off because of Covi-19 and obtained very positive results.

Typically, Liverpool, the Anfield home team, still accepts to pay employees for three days of playing at home as expected (March 21, April 12, April 25) despite the fact that it does not take place. Each match will cost about 200,000 to 250,000 pounds per match so the total amount of Liverpool “relief” for the staff falls from 600,000 to 750,000 pounds.

MU also confirmed the same thing when the Old Trafford team wants to reduce financial anxiety for seasonal employees and recognize their important role for the club. However, the prerequisite is that these employees must work for the club for 3 months or more. In addition, Brighton, Crystal Palace, Wolves are also responding to this movement.
