FIORENTINA are willing to offer £27m for Fred after Manchester United paid almost double.
Last summer Jose Mourinho splashed £53m on the Brazilian, who is now attracting interest from the Italian club for almost half that, reports Calciomercato.
Having had a miserable first season at United, scoring just one goal, the midfielder is yet to make an appearance this campaign.
AN UNDER-FIRE Steve Bruce sought the advice of the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson before masterminding Newcastle’s shock win over Spurs.
The Toon boss was facing stick from supporters after replacing fan-favourite Rafa Benitez, with defeats in the first two games of his reign cranking up the pressure.
Speaking after the win, Bruce said: “We have tried to quieten the storm. After two games, it’s been hard to get that criticism. I hope that gives us a little a bit of time.
“It is only the first win but we have seen some big performances today. The only way we can respond to criticism is like that.
“We have had a tough week so we have had to respond in the right way and thankfully the players have.
“I mean, to say I “cannot even do a warm-up” is mad. I have managed 900-odd games and over the years you would think there would be some sort of respect.
“I go back to the fact that whoever took over from Rafa Benitez was going to get the abuse. I hope that is a line in the sand.”
LUKE SHAW has reportedly been ruled out of action for a month with a hamstring injury.
The 24-year-old was forced off in the first half for Manchester Unitedduring their shock 2-1 defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
According to talkSPORT, Shaw won't be back until at least a month after he hobbled off against the Eagles at Old Trafford.
Shaw could now be set to miss the matches against Southampton, Leicester, West Han, Arsenal, Liverpool and Norwich.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had hoped the England international would be back fit to face the Saints at St Mary's this weekend.
JOSE MOURINHO wanted to sell Anthony Martial because he was too mentally weak.
The former Manchester United boss wanted to replace the winger with Bayern Munich's Ivan Perisic, because he felt the Frenchman couldn't deal with setbacks very well.
This is according to the Times (via CaughtOffside).
