Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes was involved in a car crash on Monday morning.
It’s believed the 27-year-old and other passengers in the vehicle have not suffered serious injuries, although this remains unconfirmed. He was driving a Porsche and it’s unclear how badly damaged the car is.
Fernandes is still expected to train at Carrington on Monday. United face bitter rivals Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday evening. It’s not clear if the Portuguese playmaker will play against Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League title chasers.
Interim manager Ralf Rangnick will be speaking to the press on Monday afternoon and is expected to give an update on Fernandes then.
Fernandes has been a vital player for United since arriving from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020, scoring 49 goals in 120 appearances in all competitions. He won four Premier League Player of the Month awards in 2020 alone, becoming the first player to achieve the feat in a calendar year.
Fernandes recently signed a new long-term deal at Old Trafford, highlighting his importance to the team. He is a 42-cap Portugal international, helping his team win the Nations League in 2019.
United are currently fifth in the Premier League, three points behind Tottenham in fourth. They have six league games remaining this season against Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Brentford, Brighton and Crystal Palace.
