Premier League giants Manchester United are done drafting in new players in their team with the English transfer window slamming shut before they could finalise certain deals. However, Manchester United are still in talks to sell a few of their players and they would need to do that before 2 September, the European transfer deadline. The Brazilian midfielder Fred, who has failed to perform as expected, might be on his way to Italy.
As per a report carried by sports news platform Calciomercato, Italian side Fiorentina are ready to draft in Manchester United flop Fred. The midfielder, who has joined the Red Devils, has visibly failed to live up to the expectations of the team management and could be counting his days in the club.
The report further adds that Fiorentina, who are currently making changes to their team after they had a forgettable season in 2018-19, are willing to offer €30 Million for Fred. It remains to be seen if Manchester United agree to the reported offer amount since they had brought in the Brazilian International for almost double that price.
If the deal is successful, Fred would become Fiorentina’s third major signing of the year as the team have already brought in Kevin-Pince Boateng and Franck Ribery for the season ahead.
In another set of reports, Fred’s Manchester United teammate, Alexis Sanchez, is being linked to a move to Italy. He is said to be a subject of transfer interest from Inter Milan who have recently brought in another Manchester United player Romelu Lukaku.
