The Red Devils signed Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk for a reported fee of £52m and could increase with various add-ons, but he has failed to make an impact at Old Trafford this season.
The 26-year-old Brazilian midfielder has made 17 appearances for the club and scored once, but he has failed to become a regular under former United boss José Mourinho.
However, Red Devils head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær might not be ready to ship off the former Donetsk star after one season at the club.
Earlier this month, the 46-year-old Norwegian manager said that he was impressed with the United player following his side's 2-1 victory against West Ham.
"I have to say, he's growing into his place and his position," he said at the time.
"It's difficult to come to a new country. He's had loads of difficulties with injuries, like niggles. Then when I came in, he didn't come to Dubai with us because [his wife was having] a baby.
"So, now he's growing into his position and I've been very pleased with his last few games. I think you can all see why we believe in him. He's got such a great confidence and attitude. He loves to have the ball, he loves to smile."
