Manchester United are looking to improve their midfield department, especially the DM position and the latest reports are intriguing.
As per today’s version of The Mirror, Fred is set to complete a move away from the Red Devils and the cash from his sale is to be delivered to Ten Hag to improve things in the center.
Last night, the Old Trafford club confirmed an agreement in principle to sell the Samba star to Turkish giants, Fenerbahce.
Mirror Sport claim that the 20-time English champions will get a fee of £12.9million from Fred’s exit and the funds will be given to the manager to sign a midfielder and Sofyan Amrabat is high on the wish-list.
The Moroccan international broke into the European scene under the guidance of Erik ten Hag in the Netherlands but rose to extreme fame at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The 26-year-old play breaker stopped the best of players and the biggest of nations from scoring in Qatar and therefore, attracted interest from top clubs.
He will be free to leave Fiorentina in less than an year which is why the Viola want him sold in the current transfer window.
The £12.9million from the sale of Fred will not be enough to sign Amrabat from the Serie A side and United will have to add more cash to reach the asking fee of £21.6million.
Ideally, they should offload McTominay as well but have recently rejected a bid worth £30million from the Hammers for the Scottish international.
We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds and will keep you up to date.
