Manchester United midfielder Fred will fight for his future after the sacking of Jose Mourinho and will not leave the Red Devils according to his agent Gilberto Silva. Manchester United bought the 25-year-old footballer for $65 million from Shakhtar Donetsk during the last June transfer window.
The Brazilian international had a very limited time playing for the first squad under former manager Jose Mourinho. Since his joining, Fred has only appeared in eight Premier League appearances and just twelve in all competitions. Besides, he has made just six starts in the English league so far.
While talking about Fred’s future at Old Trafford, former Arsenal midfielder Gilberto Silva told the Telegraph “The fact that he is not playing makes him anxious, but what I say to him is that he must keep working hard on a daily basis, he should be patient because the club is going through a delicate moment.”
He then also added “Many things have happened to him in six months. A new lifestyle, a different league and a historic club with the grandeur of United that are going under a lot of pressure. Perhaps this pressure impacts on him as well. In spite all of that, he sees everything as a learning process.”
Fred’s agent then assures that the Brazilian midfielder will not leave Manchester United this season while saying “But there is no chance of him leaving United. He has a five-year contract. It is not because the first six months were not good enough that he is willing to leave – or even after one year.”
He said “Obviously when you don’t play too much it is worrying because you want to show your quality,” and then further added, “Although from the outside view it seems there is tension regarding him not playing that much, his work on a daily basis has been good.”
