Manchester United are prepared to let fringe players Fred and Donny Van De Beek leave the club this summer as Erik Ten Hag’s revolution continues.
Following the arrivals of Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, and Mason Mount, the midfield pair are now considered surplus to requirements by Ten Hag and will definitely leave Old Trafford this summer.

According to Fabrizio Romano, bitter Turkish rivals Fenerbahce and Galatasaray are currently fighting it out for the services of Brazilian international Fred after it was revealed earlier today that Fenerbahce have submitted an opening bid worth $16.5m in total including add-ons for the 30-year-old.

As for Van De Beek, the Red Devils are hoping to reach an agreement over a season-long loan with Spanish club Real Sociedad for the Dutch international after his form took a sudden nose-dive following his arrival from Ajax three summers ago.
Despite showing his best form under Ten Hag at the Dutch giants, Van De Beek has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford and will hope a move to the Champions League qualifiers will kickstart a career that is threatening to fizzle out quickly.
