Manchester United have accepted a bid for squad player Fred from Turkish Lig giants Fenerbache as Erik Ten Hag continues to refine his squad ahead of the new season.
Following the summer arrival of Mason Mount from Chelsea, Brazilian international Fred has fallen further down the pecking order and the Red Devils are keen to facilitate a deal as soon as possible to give them time to strike out a transfer for first-choice midfield target Sofyan Amrabat from Fiorentina.
Fred set for Old Trafford exit
According to Fabrizio Romano, the 30-year-old has seen a $16.5m bid from Fenerbache accepted by United after he had already agreed personal terms with the Turkish giants.
