Manchester City Ready To Pull Plug On Fred Move As Interest Cools

Manchester City Ready To Pull Plug On Fred Move As Interest Cools

Fred to Manchester City in the summer looked to be a done deal but now it seems City have cooled their interest in the Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder.

Pep Guardiola explored the possibility of signing the Brazilian in the January transfer window, but turned attentions to Riyad Mahrez as he looked to bring in the Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez on deadline day.

it seemed like City's interest in the 25-year old remained though, as only last month UOL Esporte reported that there is an agreement in place for Fred to move to the Etihad when the transfer window opens again in the summer.

Fred was touted as City's preferred long-term replacement for Fernandinho but now fresh reports from Goal's Sammy Lee, and Jack Gaughan from the Daily Mail say that City aren't as keen as they once were and are considering pulling the plug.

While City have not abandoned their interest in Fred as of yet, they are believed to be looking at other more appealing alternatives.

Rivals Manchester United have also been linked, with Shakhtar's CEO Sergei Palkin revealing that he will leave to one of the Manchester clubs in the summer.

"Fred will leave this summer," he said to Corriere dello Sport, via Goal.

"If not to Manchester City, then to Manchester United. He is ready for the best championships. In addition to being very good, Fred is very professional."
