The Arrival of Donny Van de Beek has presented the Brazilian with plenty of competition at Old Trafford.
Man United man, Fred has stated his desire remain at the club as he welcomes former Ajax midfielder to the squad.
There have been suggestions that Van de Beek’s arrival is going to limit the number of times Fred gets on the lineup list which in other words turns him odd.
Fred likely to be sidelined easily considering the presence of the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and currently Van de Beek.
“I want to stay here – that’s my desire,” Fred told reporters.
“I don’t want to leave. As I’ve always said, I want to be an important player and win trophies for this club.
“[Van de Beek’s arrival] means we’re getting stronger and that’s good for everyone at United.
“When you play at a big club, there will always be competition – I’m used to it. It’s been like that from day one at United.”
Fred went on to share his desires to see more signings coming into the squad.
“We need more players for this season because it will be even more demanding,” The Brazilian added.
“The calendar is crammed and we need a strong squad to compete for every title.”
With the same vision used in the past season, United aim to build through ranks and stregthen up the team as they compete for major leagues.
“We can’t say it was a good one, because we didn’t win a trophy.
“For a club like Manchester United, it’s not a good season without a title.
“We managed to reach three semi-finals but lost them all. We were close to our goals, but they just didn’t come our way – I was really confident that we would win something, but it didn’t happen.
“At least we managed to play good football at times during the campaign, and qualifying for the Champions League was very important because this club must be in that competition. It was crucial to get our place back, but that alone isn’t enough: we want to fight for that title, too.
“The good thing is that we’re improving as a team and I think we’re heading in the right direction. Trophies will come our way soon.”
