PSG ploting to sign shock Manchester United midfielder in 2023, £30m asking price

Paris Saint-Germain is rumored to be interested in Manchester United’s midfielder Fred, which might come as a surprise.

Despite United exercising an option to extend Fred’s contract to June 2024 this week, PSG is reportedly interested.

The Sun reports that Fred is on PSG’s list of prospective summer acquisitions.

According to reports, United would not consider selling for less than £30 million.

This week, United extended the contracts of Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Diogo Dalot, and Fred.

Fred was the most surprising, with The Guardian recently reporting that Erik ten Hag would allow him to leave on a free transfer.

The purpose of the extension may be to increase United’s asking price for the midfielder. In the past, this technique has failed, but with this 12-month option, it makes sense now.

Under Erik ten Hag, Fred has started only four of United’s 14 Premier League games as a member of the starting lineup.

While he has enjoyed a productive combination with Casemiro for Brazil, he is not the first choice to pair with him for United, nor was he for the Brazilian national team at the World Cup.

Fred was signed by United from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2018, and he will turn 30 in March.

United will accept the £30 million amount with a grain of salt. It is difficult to imagine United rejecting £25 million for a player with one year remaining on his contract, for example.

With a strong Brazilian contingent that includes Neymar and Marquinhos, PSG would be an attractive destination for Fred.

After being released from his contract in 2019, Ander Herrera did the same move and went on to win two Ligue 1 championships.

The Manchester Evening News reports that Jude Bellingham is the ideal midfielder for United in 2023. Fred’s prospects of playing time would diminish if he were to be signed, or if an alternative player was acquired.

There are other promising young players in the academy, including Hannibal Mejbri when he returns from loan next summer.
