The Portuguese midfielder may know a thing or two.
Bruno Fernandes, a Manchester United midfielder, has intimated that he may know where Cristiano Ronaldo’s football future rests.
It is no secret that Ronaldo has been attempting to gain a permanent move away from the club, but he remains a member of the squad due to a lack of suitors for the 37-year-old.
He wants to play Champions League football, which will not be available at Old Trafford under Erik ten Hag this season.
A number of major teams, including Chelsea and Bayern Munich, have turned down the chance to sign the former Real Madrid player.
The Portugal international began United’s victory over rivals Liverpool on the bench on Monday evening, appearing for only four minutes as a replacement.And midfielder Fernandes has been tight-lipped on his teammate’s future.

Fernandes told Eleven Sports following the Red Devils’ victory, “There is a lot of speculation.” I may know something or another, but I will not be the one to say it.
“For the time being, he is a United player; I don’t know about his future, whether he will go or not.”
“As he said, he’ll talk soon, and they’ll have time to hear what he has to say.”
“He has the ability to continue at a high level and provide us with several goals, but that is his decision.”
“We have to respect whatever he wants to do.”
“If he stays, we’ll be glad; if he leaves because he believes it’s best for him, I’ll be personally happy for him.”
With his future uncertain, the Portugal international resorted to Instagram to assure Man Utd fans that “you’ll all know the truth when I do an interview in a few weeks.”
“The media only spews lies,” Ronaldo continued. I keep a notebook, and only five of the previous 100 news reports I wrote were correct. You can imagine the way things are. Bear that figure in mind.”
