And now the Red Devils have confirmed that an agreement in principle has been reached with the Super Lig giants.

A club statement read: “The Brazil international is set for a switch to the Turkish Super Lig, subject to a medical, agreeing personal terms and receiving international clearance to process the move.

“Our no.17 is scheduled to fly out to Istanbul on Saturday, in order to take his medical tests.”

They added: “The 30-year-old leaves so many positive memories from his time at Old Trafford, where he has been a hugely popular individual, both as a person and as a player.

“Everybody at the club would like to wish the very best of luck to Fred for the future, as we await confirmation that the deal is completed.”

Fred made the move to Old Trafford in 2018 from Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donestsk.

United forked out a whopping £52m to bring him to the Theatre of Dreams.

But they are now taking an almost £40m hit on the player, who has failed to establish himself as a key player.
