The news that Fred is a summer transfer target for Fulham has been met with reactions from Manchester United supporters.
In Sunday’s 2-1 home victory over the Cottagers, the midfielder marked the end of the Premier League campaign with a skillful assist on Bruno Fernandes’ game-winning goal. Marco Silva, the Fulham manager, was seen speaking with Fred following the game.
According to The Manchester Evening News, the London club, which last summer paid £13 million to United to get Andreas Pereira, has set its sights on the 30-year-old. The Reds are anticipated to sell current team members to pay for new additions.
In an effort to stay within Financial Fair Play guidelines following the £225 million expenditure last year, they are prepared to allow Harry Maguire, Anthony Martial, and other players to leave the club.
Since joining United in 2018, Fred has made 212 appearances, scoring 14 goals in that time. This season, he has scored six of those goals. However, under Erik Ten Hag, he only made 12 starts in Premier League games. He still has one year left on his contract.
Fans have expressed their admiration for the Brazilian, who may be one of the players United let go as a result of their videotaped conversation with Silva. Twitter users emphasized that if he does leave, they would expect a big transfer fee in exchange.
@jayrad1989: For them, it would be a fantastic signing.
@Savioursancho: I would really love to see Fred join Fulham.
@meticulous31: This summer, we could surpass significant sales milestones. Even without Telles, Bailly, Williams, VDB, or Martial, if we’re lucky enough to receive anything for them, Henderson, Maguire, AWB, McTominay, and Fred alone will bring in at least £100 million.
@jamesmoores_: Pastor Fred, if this is the end, it’s been a pleasure.
@Caeser20201: He wants to sign him because he believes Fred would thrive at Fulham, start every game, and significantly improve their midfield.
