Man Utd star Fred completes £13m Fenerbahce transfer as fans call for club to sign World Cup star | The Sun

FENERBAHCE have completed the signing of Fred from Manchester United in a £13million move.

The 30-year-old Brazilian bid an emotional farewell to the Red Devils after passing a medical on Saturday.

United will receive £9m up front with £4m in add-ons for the midfielder, who made over 200 appearances for the club and contributed 14 goals and 19 assists.

Fenerbahce confirmed the news this morning, and United supporters quickly reacted to the Fred transfer on Twitter by urging their team to go and secure the signing of Sofyan Amrabat to replace him.

“Fred had left BUTTTTT it means Amrabat,” read one tweet.

Another demanded “now get Amrabat” with a fellow fan echoing those remarks with: “Sign Amrabat!”

While another tweet said: “Now Fred has gone, get Amrabat announced ASAP. ETH is building something very special and finally a manager is getting rid of the dead wood costing us millions in wages who don't perform.”

Erik ten Hag is looking for more reinforcements after already adding Mason Mount, Rasmus Hojlund and Andre Onana to his squad.

But he and United were handed a blow in their pursuit of signing Amrabat after another team reportedly joined the race.

Juventus are now also keen on securing the Morocco international, who is 26, from Fiorentina.
