Fred set to remain with Fluminense after disappointing World Cup
After a horrific World Cup campaign, Brazil striker Fred is set to remain with current club Fluminense.
The 30-year-old forward has received criticism throughout the tournament and has only found the net once in six appearances.
In Tuesday nights humiliating 7-1 semi-final defeat to Germany, Fred was jeered when he touched the ball and was booed as he excited midway through the second half.
Unsurprisingly his World Cup displays have failed to attract many potential suitor for the forward but he has received some proposals.
However, Lancenet have spoken to people connected with Fred and Fluminense and have been informed that the Brazil international will remain with the Rio de Janeiro club, for the time being.
It would cost $45 million to terminate Fred’s contract while his Brazilian club wouldn’t accept any offers below £10 million.
Those figures mean European clubs are unlikely to pursue his signature and if any bids were to come in for the 30-year-old they would likely be from more obscure teams in the Middle East, etc.
Fred will be hoping he can put his disappointing World Cup campaign behind him and start firing in the goals for Fluminense again.
