Manchester United are reportedly working on trying down Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes to long-term contracts.
It has been reported by numerous sources over the past couple of months that United will be entering discussions with the players and have already started talks with both of them.
Fabrizio Romano discussed the two players’ contract situations in his column in Benchwarmers.
Romano explains that fresh new terms have been on the table for a couple of months for the French midfielder and the club is awaiting his final decision.
However, talks with Fernandes are looking more promising Romano has claimed.
He added: “Of course, optimism is much more on the Bruno Fernandes front.
“Talks with his agent began in the first week of July and Manchester United know that renewing his contract is essential.
“Bruno is more than just a leader, on and off the pitch.
“That’s why the club is negotiating a new long-term deal to reward him, knowing that the Portuguese is very happy at Old Trafford.”
