Galatasaray to make a move for Fred
There has been numerous midfielders linked with Galatasaray in past few months.
According to the football transfer rumours in Turkish and British media, Galatasaray will make a move for Fred.
The 27-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Manchester United spent 59 million euros to sign the Brazil international from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer of 2018. The 27-year-old has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2023.
The midfielder has banged in two goals and provided four assists in 42 matches for Manchester United this term on all fronts.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Brazil.
Fred has earned 9 senior caps for the Brazil national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his nation.
He is currently out of favor at Manchester and could leave the club this summer.
The Turkish giants are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 27-year-old as potential transfer target.
The report claims that Fatih Terim has extensively scouted Fred and is considering a move for the midfielder.
Galatasaray are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
There is no doubt that Fred will take Galatasaray’s midfield to a different level.
According to the report, “Galatasaray are preparing an offer for Manchester United midfielder Fred. Fotomac says United are bracing themselves for a Galatasaray bid for Fred. The Turkish giants are reportedly preparing a loan deal with an option to buy. Brazilian midfielder Fred did not feature as much after United signed Bruno Fernandes in January. And with Paul Pogba also welcome back into the fold, the Turks will try and swoop for the 27-year-old.”
