Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes has signed a new deal with the Portuguese Super League giants.

The news of his Sporting Lisbon contract was announced by the club on Tuesday evening.

It was revealed that he has signed a new deal with the same length as the previous deal.

The previous Sporting Lisbon contract was to expire in 2023 just as what’s obtainable with the new deal.

The major difference between the two contracts is that the release clause has increased to €100m.

Bruno Fernandes said that it was a privilege to feature for Sporting Lisbon after putting pen to paper on a new contract.

The Portuguese international is a long-term transfer target for Manchester United though it seems the Red Devils have moved on from him to other midfield targets in recent weeks.

Bruno Fernandes was a strong transfer target for Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in the summer but none of the two Premier League sides were able to pull off a deal for him.

The Sporting Lisbon star was one of the best players in Portugal last season after scoring 32 goals for his team in all competitions.

He was part of the team that won the inaugural UEFA Nations League for Portugal.
