Turkish giants Galatasaray have reportedly agreed personal terms with Manchester United midfielder Fred as United look to shift more of the players who don’t have a future at the club.

According to Turkish source Alain Turkce, the Turkish champions have taken a big step towards completing the signing of the Brazilian midfielder, who has just one year remaining on his contract.

United reportedly value Fred at around £20 million according to The Telegraph.

Fred not part of future

The 30-year-old is seemingly not in Erik ten Hag’s plans going forward into the new season, with Scott Mctominay also seemingly on his way out of Old Trafford, too.

Erik ten Hag has reportedly been told that he needs to sell to buy if he wants to add another midfielder to his ranks.

The midfielder Ten Hag reportedly wants is Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina.

The Moroccan is reportedly available for around £30 million, with United reportedly willing to offer that fee for the midfielder according to Alfredo Pedulla.

What legacy would Fred leave?

So Fred’s future at Old Trafford seems up in the air. The midfielder has had a rather bizarre career at Old Trafford.

United spent £52 million on the midfielder from Shakhtar Donetsk under Jose Mourinho according to The Guardian but the midfielder seemed to struggle to adapt to the physical demands of the PremierLeague.

The Brazilian would consistently get shoved off the ball, but as time went on, the midfielder began to adapt to the physical demands.

He formed a strange but effective partnership with Scott Mctominay under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The pair had plenty of heart and desire which endeared themselves to the United faithful, as you would expect. The midfielder also formed an effective partnership with United’s new boy, Casemiro.

The pair, in particular, thrived on the big occasion which culminated in a superb second half against Barcelona in the Europa League and the Brazilian will always be remembered for his passion and his knack for scoring big goals in big games.
