Despite being in the final year of his contract, Fred started Man United’s season finale at Old Trafford.
Fred, a midfielder for Manchester United, has become a target for Fulham.
The Manchester Evening News has learned that brokers have suggested a potential transfer for the 30-year-old Fred to Fulham because United is looking to bring in a more youthful midfielder.
Before the Londoners left the stadium, Fulham manager Marco Silva was seen having a conversation with Fred outside of Old Trafford.
Fred’s contract, which was extended by a year in the winter, is about to enter its final year.
Scott McTominay has drawn interest from Newcastle, although United has not currently made plans to sell him because he is their newest senior midfielder.
Since being promoted back to the top division last year, Fulham has added a number of Portuguese-speaking players, and in July they acquired Brazilian Andreas Pereira from United.
As United boss Erik ten Hag considers a tactical change against City, Fred could keep his position in the FA Cup final. Fred started in the home victories against Manchester City and Barcelona as well as the League Cup final victory over Newcastle.
Despite his popularity, Fred only started two league games following his starting position in Liverpool’s 7-0 thrashing at Anfield on March 5.
The 22 games that the Brazilian international has started this season are the fewest since his first campaign at United in 2018-19.
To adhere to the Premier League’s profitability and sustainability requirements, United is under pressure to raise money to reinvest in incomings.
Some of those who are most likely to be made available for transfer include Harry Maguire, Anthony Martial, Eric Bailly, Alex Telles, and Brandon Williams.
