Manchester United are reportedly set to double Bruno Fernandes wages as a reward for his excellent performances since joining the club a year ago.

Fernandes arrived Old Trafford during the January transfer window from Sporting Lisbon alongside Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo.

The Portuguese is understood to have penned a five-year contract in a deal that could cost United around £67million.

However, SunSport now reports Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to have the Red Devils reward him with a new lucrative offer.

The deal could reported see the Portuguese playmaker’s wages rocket to around £200,000.

The new wages will take him at par with Edinson and Marcus Rashford but way behind Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and David de Gea all who currently pocket more.

The new move is said to be aimed at fending off any chance of any club trying to unsettle Bruno, who has already established himself as a key member of the United squad, with a new offer during the summer transfer window.

The 26-year-old has scored seven goals and assisted four others in 10 league appearances this season.
