Report: Fred could make Premier League return within a year after leaving Manchester United

Former Manchester United player Fred might return to the Premier League

Former Manchester United player Fred who left last summer might return to the Premier League. Due to Sandro Tonali’s ban from football for at least 10 months, Newcastle United might make the move to sign the Brazilian.

The Brazilian left United for Fenerbahce in a deal worth £8.72 million in the summer, and the Turkish powerhouses will seek around £17 million to sell him. Fred, who has so far contributed five assists, has been a vital member of the team and is enjoying life in Turkey.

According to the Turkish outlet Fotomoc (h/t Manchester Evening News), considering his age and the fact that Fenerbahce would demand twice the amount they paid for him, it appears audacious of Newcastle to make such a proposal. But the Mag[pies have a gap to plug in the middle of the park, at least in the short term and cannot leave it unattended.

Given that Fred has established himself as a vital member of Fenerbahce, signing him could prove to be challenging for Newcastle. In addition to winning all three of their Conference League group matches, the Yellow Canaries have won all nine of their Super Lig contests.

Mason Mount from Chelsea has now been added to our roster during the last transfer window. In the 2023–2024 term, the 24-year-old is a contender to start in the middle of the park. While he is an upgrade over Fred at Old Trafford, we are yet to see the former Chelsea star at his best.

Fred and Scott McTominay had a well-established combination at the club before Erik ten Hag’s transfer from Ajax Amsterdam. But the need to evolve was apparent and the Brazilian was let go.

Few can complain about the Brazilian’s departure given his poor run of form last season. Despite playing in most of the matches, the midfield player did not appear to be the Dutch manager’s first choice on the squad sheet.

Halfway through the season, Fener will not want to trade their new prize asset, but the Geordies have plenty of cash and money talks. Having played in the English top division for five seasons, Fred would have little trouble adjusting to the Premier League should he decide to return.
