Fred has urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sign more Brazilians for Manchester United, according to a report in the Manchester Evening News.
Fred has improved this season and became an important member of the squad — making 39 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions while scoring just two goals.
The 27-year-old thinks that signing more Brazilians could help United even though our record signing players from Brazil is very hit and miss. Kleberson, Anderson, Andreas Pereira, Rodrigo Possebon and the Da Silva twins are the other Brazilian players who have represented Manchester United — and now isn’t the time to take risks on signings.
Costly mistakes will see manager’s get endless stick during this pandemic and there are no Brazilians, at the top of my head, that United are linked with signing right now.
United will be in the market this summer, but Fred thinks they should be looking at adding a few more Brazilians to their squad too.
“It would be cool to have more Brazilians on the team,” Fred told Esporte Interativo, as cited by the MEN. “Not much, we don’t need many. I’m kidding. But it’s always good to have Brazilians here to help.
“Everyone knows the qualities that we Brazilians have, and it’d be very good if some players arrive to fill the squad, to help here.”
Andreas Pereira is the only other Brazil international in the squad at the moment and the player’s comments could prompt Solskjaer to consider recruiting some fresh talent from the South American country.
