Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has made the decision to allow Brazilian midfielder Fred leave the club at the end of the season, according to The Guardian via Metro.

The Brazil international has entered the final 12 months of his deal at Old Trafford while there is the option to extend that by a further year, the club are not expected to activate it.

Ten Hag reportedly admires the work ethic of the Brazilian midfielder but is keen to continue overhauling his midfield following the summer signing of Casemiro who is already a key figure in the middle of the park.

Fred was signed from Shakhtar Donetsk for a £52million fee in the summer of 2018.
