However, talkSPORT understands Fernandes is not pushing to leave the club, who have received no indication he is unhappy.

And the Portugal international has reaffirmed his commitment to United amid speculation he will leave.

Speaking to Sky Sports after their 3-2 win over Newcastle, he said: “I’ll be here until I say the club must want me, I feel the club want me to be part of the future.

“As I’ve always said, I don’t want to be a player that the club doesn’t want to have. If for whatever reason they don’t want me I’ll go but if they want me I’ll stay.”

Towards the end of the interview, United boss Erik ten Hag could be seen apparently ushering in an acceleration of things.

He then lightly waved his captain away, with the journalist quickly handing Fernandes the player of the match award.

The 29-year-old joined the rest of his United team-mates as Ten Hag delivered a message to fans at Old Trafford in their final home game of the season.

“On behalf of the players, staff and myself, I would like to thank you all for your brilliant support during this season. As you know, it has not been an easy season, but one thing has remained constant and it is your support to the team.

“This season is not over yet. First we go to Brighton where we travel for three points, then we go to Wembley. And I promise you that these players will give everything to get this cup (the FA Cup) and the bring to Old Trafford.

“We are sure you will be there to support us. Thank you, you are the best supporters in the world.”

United’s victory over Newcastle provided a huge boost ahead of the final, but European qualification is on the line.

They sit eighth and tied with the Magpies on 57 points, although the latter are above them thanks to their much superior goal difference.

Chelsea are currently sixth in the Europa Conference League alone and need just one point to qualify for Europe, with the Blues also enjoying a better goal difference.

If United finish seventh on the final day, they will miss out on continental football, unless they beat City in the FA Cup final, as that will see them qualify for the Europa League.

The Ten Hag side took the lead against Newcastle at Old Trafford through Kobbie Mainoo, with the visitors equalizing through Anthony Gordon.

Second-half goals from Amad Diallo and Rasmus Hojlund were enough to seal all three points despite a late consolation goal from Lewis Hall.
