Commenting on SPORT TV’s post, Fernandes wrote: “And I thought the new year only started a few days ago, yet we’re already on April 1!

“Or is this once again just bad journalism?”

Fernandes is the latest player to speak publicly about the situation at Manchester United, following the likes of Marcus Rashford and Fred.

"I'm not sulking, I'm not unhappy, am I disappointed in some of my performances? Of course I am,” he wrote.

"I'm my own biggest critic. It's been a tough start but I'm determined to prove my worth.

"My dedication and my desire to be here should never be in question. I love this club."

Meanwhile, Fred has also hit out at so-called “fake news” regarding the United squad.

“Over the past few days I have read several fake news [articles] involving my name and other MUFC athletes,” wrote the Brazilian.

“I’m not in the habit of answering controversial stuff publicly, but this time I will have to.

“I just want to say that I am very happy here and I have never expressed any dissatisfaction and the possibility of leaving the club.

“Don’t get misled by fake news. We will continue to work with great dedication to pursue our goals.”
