Although Alexis Sanchez is the one who everyone is expecting to leave Manchester United for Serie A this summer, perhaps there’s another player who could be taking the same route.

According to Italian newspaper La Nazione today (via Calcio Mercato and Labaro Viola), Fiorentina are interested in signing Fred.

The outlet reports that club director Danielle Pradé has contacted Manchester United to know more about the chances of signing the 26-year-old.

It’s stated the player is currently valued at €30m.

The rumour comes as a surprise for the Italian media, since they didn’t expect Fiorentina to come up with such an idea at the end of the transfer window.

Fred is still to feature for Manchester United this season, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer leaving a clear sign that he’s not a big part of his plans.
