Bruno Fernandes not interested in Al-Hilal move

Bruno Fernandes is not interested in a move to Al-Hilal despite interest in the Manchester United captain from the Saudi side.

Al-Hilal are understood to have submitted a huge proposal to sign the Portugal international during the January transfer window, though Fernandes rejected the advances and believes he has unfinished business in Europe.


The report has emerged from Portuguese publication Record, who say Al-Hilal remain interested in Fernandes and will renew attempts to sign the 29-year-old in the summer.

Al-Hilal, who are seven points clear at the top of the Saudi Pro League table, are keen to sign another marquee addition in the summer following the arrival of Neymar.

The Saudi side also signed Kalidou Koulibaly, Ruben Neves and Aleksandar Mitrovic from Premier League clubs, with the latter having been in prolific form with 17 goals from 17 games, sitting behind only Cristiano Ronaldo in the race for the Golden Boot.

Al-Hilal are currently under the management of Portuguese coach Jorge Jesus, who previously managed Fernandes at Sporting Lisbon.


Fernandes has made 216 appearances for Manchester United, scoring 71 goals, since his arrival from Sporting for an initial fee of £47m in January 2020. The midfielder was appointed as club captain in the summer, replacing Harry Maguire.
