Manchester United captain Bruno Fernandes has rubbished rumours that he could move to Saudi Arabia.

Fernandes insisted he is “happy” at Old Trafford, despite the club’s difficult run of form.

Several players have been linked with exits amid the arrival of new investor Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

Fernandes, who joined the club three years ago, however, said he wants to stay.

“I’m focusing on the national team and United. I’m happy where I am. In the national team, we had some very good times; at Manchester United, we didn’t start the way we wanted. I don’t look at rumours. I don’t pay attention to them,” Fernandes told Sport TV Portugal.

In a related post, Al-Ettifaq manager Steven Gerrard has labelled Cristiano Ronaldo as “The GOAT”.

Gerrard joined up with Ronaldo in the Saudi Arabian Pro League in July.

During Ronaldo’s first spell with Manchester United, he enjoyed a fierce rivalry with Gerrard who was Liverpool’s captain at the time.

"The arrival of ‘The GOAT’ as we call him, Cristiano (Ronaldo), him arriving in January obviously (was) a huge signing,” Gerrard said in an interview with the Saudi Pro League.

“He still had a lot of football to offer. So, from afar, for six months, I was looking in at Cristiano Ronaldo’s results, at the league, watching some games and watching some highlights.

“I think from that moment, the league around the world had become a very popular talking point for everyone. After Cristiano’s arrival, even more big-name signings, talents and skill sets were joining the league.”
