Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, threatened to leave the club after they joined 11 other clubs to sign up for the proposed European Super League, according to The Athletic.
Fernandes only arrived at Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020 and has become one of the most important players in the squad.
However, the Red Devils were just one decision away from losing the Portugal international.
Luke Shaw was another United player that spoke against the decision to join the breakaway competition in April.
Fernandes and Shaw were said to be irate with the club’s involvement in the controversial league and took some serious measures to ensure the United hierarchy understood their position.
The pair reportedly questioned executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward about the club’s involvement and criticised the Manchester United chief for treating the players like ‘children’ and ‘assets’.
In order to make his stance clear, Fernandes reportedly threatened to leave the club if they continued with their plans.
