Man United reject Fred bid amid building interest in midfielder

Manchester United have rejected an opening bid from Galatasaray for Fred, amid growing interest in the midfielder.

Fred is free to leave Manchester United this summer should a suitable offer arrive, with the Brazilian having made just 12 league starts under Erik ten Hag last season.


The 30-year-old’s contract expires next summer and the Red Devils are keen to recoup a fee and bring in funds to strengthen the squad.

Fabrizio Romano is reporting that Galatasaray have approached United over a potential deal, but an undisclosed opening offer from the Turkish side has been rejected. However, Fred is expected to depart this summer as several clubs pursue a deal.

The midfielder travelled with the squad to Norway for Wednesday’s friendly with Leeds, but did not feature as the Red Devils began their pre-season campaign with a 2-0 win in Oslo.

Fulham are also interested in a deal to sign Fred and are preparing an approach, while there is interest from other Premier League sides and The Saudi Pro League.

United are reportedly demanding a fee in excess of £20m for Fred, who has made 213 appearances in all competitions since arriving from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2018.
