With the speculation that Fred will be on the move to Fiorentina, Man United has now decided to keep the Brazil international.
Since his transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk, the midfielder has not been able to shine, despite the high expectation both the team and the fans had in him. The most disappointing part is that his transfer had cost the Red Devils £52m.
Earlier reports suggested that Ole Gunnar had considered shipping the player for a mere £27m. These rumors went ahead to claim that the player would be up and leaving by 2nd September which is the European transfer deadline.
After holding talks, however, it turns out that Ole still sees potential in the 26-year-old. Backed by Ander Herrera’s departure to PSG, the Norwegian decided that keeping Fred was the way to go.
Ole went ahead to encourage the player that as long as he trained harder he will play for Man U this season.
Fred who had missed two weeks of the pre-season training because of his wedding has some serious catching up to do. Good thing he is also aware as he has signed up for some private fitness workout apart from his normal schedule.
Although McTominay is having a thriving season, Ole also believes that Fred will have “a big season” too.
The team management thought it wise to ask fans to post the questions that they wanted to ask Fred, which they did. However, the unexpected happened, a section of the fans started trolling the player asking when he would leave while others asked when he would step up his game.
Well, in our opinion, we do hope that Fred would actually do his part next season but until then, let’s give the midfielder another chance.
