Fred set for new terms at Manchester United
According to the Sun, Manchester United star Fred is all set to extend his stay at the club.
It displays a remarkable turnaround for the Brazilian who was seen as a flop not too long ago. United beat rivals Manchester City for the midfielder in the summer of 2018.
The 27-year-old endured a rough start to his life at Old Trafford. An inability to replicate his form from Shakhtar Donetsk saw him struggle to make an impact in the United line-up.
To his credit, he has turned his fortunes around this season. The Brazilian has made 40 appearances in all competitions, scoring twice and assisting four. (h/t Transfermarkt)
In the absence of Paul Pogba, the Samba star has become one of the first players on the teamsheet.
The Red Devils are in no hurry to hand Fred a contract extension. With time left on his current deal, it is understandable. The club is, however, expected to get the ball rolling before the end of the year.
