Alejandro Garnacho's brother has addressed speculation linking Bruno Fernandes with a move away from Manchester United. The midfielder is attracting interest from around Europe ahead of the summer transfer window, with Saudi sides also monitoring his situation closely.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe is planning to make several wholesale changes to his newly-acquired Red Devils squad this summer, with veteran stars set to be offloaded to raise funds for younger, more exciting signings.

Raphael Varane has already announced that he will be leaving United at the end of the season as a free agent, with Casemiro and Christian Eriksen also both likely to depart as part of INEOS' rebuild.

Reports have emerged claiming that Fernandes could be among those to head out of the Old Trafford exit as well, with the Portuguese international being eyed by Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.

However, Garnacho's brother Roberto has taken to X to play down the speculation. Responding to a tweet which claimed that Varane, Fernandes and Erik ten Hag could all be set to leave the club, he wrote: "Bruno staying."

Ten Hag also had a similar view on the reports, giving a disgruntled response when quizzed on whether he believes his skipper could be on the move at the end of the season.

The Dutchman said: "It's the same question as last week. And the same answer. In all the years, he was a tremendously important player for Manchester United, creating the most chances across the Premier League. So many assists, so many goals. It's clear he's a very important player for us."

Fernandes has scored 10 and assisted seven in 33 Premier League appearances so far this season and is one of just a few players to emerge from the campaign with credit, with Ten Hag struggling in recent weeks to inject creativity into his starting eleven in the absence of his captain, who is currently nursing an injury.

It remains to be seen whether Fernandes' suitors attempt to test the resolve of United this summer and table a big-money bid for the playmaker in the hope of turning his head. Funds raised from the departure could enable Ratcliffe's rebuild to take shape, though it would be difficult to find a suitable replacement for the midfielder going forward.
