Fenerbahce agree a deal with Manchester United and Fred to sign the midfielder

According to a tweet from transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano, Turkish side Fenerbahce have agreed on a deal with Manchester United to sign midfielder Fred.

Medicals will take place soon as and when the player travels. The important bit here is that personal terms are fully agreed between Fenerbahce and Fred.

It was only a few hours ago when Romano tweeted that the Turkish side have submitted a proposal worth around €15m to sign the Brazil international. Seems like this file moved quickly once United got the money they wanted for their asset.

It was five years ago in a summer window when the Red Devils spent £52m to sign Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk.

The 30-year-old was one of the regular members of the starting XI once Jose Mourinho left and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the reins in the middle of the 2018/19 campaign.

Once Erik ten Hag arrived last summer, the midfielder’s minutes started becoming a bit more sporadic. The arrival of his fellow countryman Casemiro did not help the cause either.

If all things go well and Fred signs for Fenerbahce in the coming days, his time as a United player will be remembered with mixed-bag feelings.

There is no doubt that the player wanted to give his all for the team every time he stepped onto the field. The issue was that he had certain limitations to his game. Once that gets found out while playing for an elite team, there is no turning back.

One would think ten Hag realised that drawback and immediately lowered his playing time from the normal level.

We wish the player the best though and hope he has a good time in Turkey.
