‘What An Insult’ ‘Must Be A Joke’ Fans On Twitter Are Not Happy By Report That United Could Loan Out £50m Flop

Galatasaray are trying to sign Manchester United midfielder Fred on loan, according to Fotospor.

The Turkish news outlet report that the Super Lig club have opened talks over signing the Brazilian on a temporary basis.

A €2m (£1.8m) loan fee has been proposed, but that seems to be a very low figure, especially with United having only paid £50m for Fred a year ago.

The 26-year-old did not perform anywhere near to the level expected during his first season at Old Trafford, but with the lack of central midfield options in the squad, his departure would be a big surprise.

Supporters on Twitter don’t believe the story to have any basis in fact:

Turkish media sources are notoriously unreliable and fans would be wise to take any information from these publications with a huge pinch of salt.

If Fred does depart this season, you would expect United to have lined up a replacement already, but the club’s current focus appears to be on signing a centre-back.
