Having arrived from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer in a big-money deal, Fred hasn’t exactly enjoyed the greatest of times at Manchester United.
The Brazil international struggled to really force himself into the United first-team in his debut campaign at Old Trafford, making just 25 appearances across all competitions.
However, La Nazione (via Calcio Mercato) claim Fiorentina are lining up a swoop for the midfielder before the end of the summer transfer window in Italy next week.

The report adds it is still unclear whether Solskjaer would be willing to let Fred go, considering the club have already lost Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini this year.
After hearing the latest update on Fred’s future, United fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts about the matter.
Many supporters of the Manchester side revealed their amazement the club could even could consider allowing the midfielder to leave, and insisted he simply has to stay.
Indeed, some United fans wondered how Jesse Lingard could remain at Old Trafford whilst players like Fred could be shown the exit door.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:

If Mctominay and Lingard are first team players and this guy is only in his second season and still not going to get chances and leaves then that would be pathetic on everyone’s part at the club.
