The midfielder has been Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s most important players this season and the club are working to get him tied down on a fresh long-term deal, stretching five years.
But Fernandes, 26, wants to understand what United are planning to do in the transfer market before he puts pen to paper, according to The Sun.

Fernandes has been outstanding and United are offering a ‘double your money’ deal
The midfielder is one of United’s lower paid first team stars despite his incredible performances since signing from Sporting Lisbon.
He is currently on a £100,000-a-week deal, well behind top earners David de Gea (£375,000-a-week) and Paul Pogba (£290,000-a-week).
The contract he signed when signing for the club last January lasts five-and-a-half years with the option of an additional year extension.
United are reportedly ready to double his standard wage and then boost it even further with performance and achievement based incentives.
The Portuguese midfielder has scored 22 times in all competitions this season so far
Last week, Solskjaer admitted that a massive spending spree in the summer would be unlikely as the club’s finances have been hit hard by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
But their star player is eager to hear what United have planned to improve the side.
Fernandes has scored a staggering 22 goals from midfield in all competitions for United so far this season.
He netted in the 2-0 derby win over Manchester City at the weekend and insisted that the Premier League title race is not over, calling it a ‘marathon not a sprint’.
United are 11 points behind City and will need Fernandes firing on all cylinders if they are to have any chance of catching their neighbours.
