Football rumours from the media


What the papers say A pay rise is likely to keep one of Manchester United’s best players at Old Trafford. The Sun says club bosses are preparing to double the flat-rate wage of 26-year-old Bruno Fernandes, who has been United’s star performer since his arrival. The midfielder, who signed a five-and-a-half-year deal after joining from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020, will soon be paid £200,000-a-week flat after so far this season scoring 15 goals.
