Serie A side Fiorentina are interested in acquiring the services of Manchester United midfielder Fred according to La Nazione.
The Serie A transfer window closes on September 2 and it is said that the club who recently signed Frenchman Frank Ribery is looking to rope Fred as they bid to boost their midfield options.
But United are not willing to let go of the midfielder with the club said to be demanding 30million euros, almost half of the £52m they paid to sign him from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer.
The report suggests Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Prade has made the Brazilian his priority and the Serie A club have entered negotiations with United.
Fred has produced one goal and one assist in 25 appearances for United, making just 13 Premier League starts.
🇧🇷 Fred yet to feature in 2019/2020
The 26-year-old is yet to feature for the Red Devils this season and is yet to be included in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's matchday squad despite United’s lack of fluidity in midfield.
He was an integral member of the United team that eliminated French moneybags PSG out of the UEFA Champions League last season and apart from being linked with a move to Fiorentina, the player has been rumoured to be angling at a loan move to Laliga.
Fiorentina got off to a disappointing start in their first league game of the season, losing 4-3 against Napoli at Artemio Franchi Stadium.
