The Brazilian midfielder endured a rocky start to life at Old Trafford but has come a long way since to become a vital part of the team.

Fred is eager to earn a place in the Manchester United hall of fame after reaching a “great landmark” of 100 appearances for the club.

Fred hit triple figures in appearances on the weekend when he started against West Brom, with the Premier League match, unfortunately for him, ending in a 1-1 stalemate.

The Brazilian is currently in his third season at the club, having earned a €50 million move to Old Trafford in 2018 after gaining prominence with Shakhtar Donetsk.

He was far from impressive in his first season but has come a long way since, having established himself as a key member of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.

“I’m really happy,” Fred replied to Inside United when informed that he has played a century of games for Man United.

“It represents a great landmark for me, it’s what everyone aims for. 

“Ah man, I wasn’t even expecting this. It took me by surprise when you just told me now. I’m really pleased. It’s a great landmark, and as I said I hope I can play many more games for United. 

“I’d like to leave a legacy here. It’s somewhere all players want to be, so I look to do my best, play in many more games and make history here.”
