Medical concluded: Manchester United confirmed another completed transaction today after a bid in excess of £10 million was accepted; the departing championFred is expected to finalize his transfer to Turkish club Fenerbahce within the next few hours, according to sources who spoke to Football Insider. United accepted a proposal for £13 million for Fred.On Saturday, the midfielder departed for a medical examination and to finalize the arrangements for his transfer.

United is expected to pay an initial £8.62 million for the 30-year-old, with the possibility of receiving an additional £4.31 million in add-on payments.

 

Fred cost United £47 million to acquire from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2018.United manager Erik ten Hag has informed the Brazil international, whose contract expires next summer, that he is not expected to play a significant role in the squad this season.

 

In addition to Fenerbahce, Premier League side Fulham and Fenerbahce rival Galatasaray had also expressed interest in the player.

 

Fred will join development prospect Zidane Iqbal as the fourth player to be sold by United this summer, following the departures of Anthony Elanga, Alex Telles, and Zidane Iqbal.

 

After Christian Eriksen and compatriot Casemiro joined in the summer of 2022/23, Fred’s playing time was restricted, and the recent £60 million acquisition of Mason Mount has further devalued Fred in the eyes of Ten Hag.

 

Fred appeared in 56 games across all competitions in 2022/23, contributing six goals and six assists. However, in just 2,275 minutes of first-team action, he played significantly fewer minutes than in previous campaigns.United may move closer to signing Sofyan Amrabat, a 26-year-old midfielder for Fiorentina, following the Brazilian’s departure. Football Insider reported earlier this month that Amrabat’s representatives had traveled to Manchester to negotiate.
