Fred is not threatened by the arrival of Donny van de Beek and is ready to fight for his place in the Manchester United team.

In the shape of Donny van de Beek, Manchester United made a strong reinforcement in the middle of the park this summer.

The Red Devils now boast one of the most talented midfield in all of Europe with the likes of Van de Beek, Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Nemanja Matic, Scot McTominay, and Fred a part of it.

But this could mean bad news for some of their players as it is unlikely that everyone would get ample playing time.

Fred is one of those players. His future has been a subject of debate as of late with rumors suggesting he has been deemed surplus to requirements by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Brazilian enjoyed an impressive redemption arc last season as he went from getting labeled as a ‘€55 million flop’ to becoming one of Solskjaer’s most reliable players.

The 27-year old, contrary to what rumors say, is not ready to walk away from a fight as he longs years to become an ‘important player’ and bring glory to Old Trafford.

“I want to stay here – that’s my desire. I don’t want to leave,” declared Fred in an interview with FourFourTwo.

“As I’ve always said, I want to be an important player and win trophies for this club.

“[Van de Beek’s arrival] means we’re getting stronger and that’s good for everyone at United. When you play at a big club, there will always be competition – I’m used to it. It’s been like that from day one at United.”
