Manchester United midfielder Fred emerges as a shock £30million transfer target for Paris Saint-Germain amid fellow interest in teammate Marcus Rashford

    Paris Saint-Germain are interested in making a shock move for Manchester United’s Fred, according to reports.

    The 29-year-old has had inconsistent appearances in the United starting XI this season, but has still featured 17 times.

    His contract at Old Trafford was set to expire at the end of the season, but an extra year was triggered by the club.

    Despite such news, the Sun are reporting that French giants PSG are keen to make a move for the Brazilian.

    They are said to be ‘long-term admirers’ of Fred, who joined United back in 2018.

    PSG want to add him to their midfield, but his current club would not let him go for anything below £30million.

    Fred has been a regular in the United midfield since his move from Shakhtar Donetsk four years ago.

    However, the signings of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen in the summer have seen him make just four Premier League starts this term.

    Fred was just one of four players at United who all had their contracts extended by another year.

    Deals for Luke Shaw and Diogo Dalot will now run until 2024, with Marcus Rashford also having another 12 months on his deal.

    Like Fred, Rashford has been linked with a move to the reigning Ligue 1 champions, but boss Erik ten Hag insisted he will stay at the club.

    PSG are clearly keen on two of United’s talents, with Fred being the latest player to attract their interest in a move.
