Manchester United midfielder Fred set to join Fenerbahce

Manchester United midfielder Fred is on the verge of joining Fenerbahce after the two clubs agreed on the transfer fee.

Reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano reports that Man United will receive €15 million, including add-ons for the Brazil international.

Fred has agreed personal terms with the Turkish giants and will now travel to complete his medical.

He moved to Old Trafford in 2018 from Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk in a deal worth €60m.

He is in the final year of his contract, leaving United with the last opportunity to raise some funds by offloading him.

Fred has been a fine squad player for United

Fred has featured over 200 times for the Red Devils, bagging 14 goals and 19 assists.

It has been a rollercoaster ride for the Brazilian ace, who has blown hot and cold throughout his five-year stay with the club.

He enjoyed his best season at United last year where he accumulated 12 goal contributions.

Erik ten Hag saw him as more of a bench player whose energy could come in handy in the latter half of the game.

He will be remembered for his tenacious performances and the ability to cover every blade of grass.

Fred aspires to play regularly, something the Dutchman cannot promise.

Mason Mount joined Man United earlier this summer. Since then, it was clear that Fred could be on his way out.

The 30-year-old is past his prime, and United have made the right call by sanctioning his exit.

The €15m fee is small, but getting something rather than nothing is rational.
