Manchester United can confirm that Fred has completed his transfer to Fenerbahce, subject to international clearance.

The Brazil international will make the switch to the Turkish Super Lig, after he successfully underwent a medical and agreed personal terms.

Our no.17 flew out to Istanbul on Saturday, in order to take his medical tests, following the initial announcement that an agreement for the move had been reached between Fenerbahce and United on Friday.

Watch our video of Fred finding the net for the Reds.

The midfielder joined the club in the summer of 2018, from Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk, and has racked up 213 appearances in total for the Reds.

Of his 14 goals, one of the highlights came this year when his strike drew us back on level terms against Barcelona, as we knocked the Catalan giants out of the Europa League.

He appeared in the Emirates FA Cup final against Manchester City, after helping us lift the Carabao Cup earlier in the campaign, and his most recent outing was in the friendly win over Lyon in Edinburgh.

A tenacious and energetic player, Fred played in both attacking and defensive midfield roles for United during his time with the club and became popular with fans for his committed approach.

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.
