Manchester United midfielder Fred rejects suggestions that he could leave the club this summer, amid reported interest from Galatasaray and Roma.

Manchester United midfielder Fred has rubbished reports that he could leave the club this summer.

The 27-year-old worked his way back into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's plans last season, making 48 appearances across all competitions including 23 Premier League starts.

However, the signing of Donny van de Beek and return to fitness of Paul Pogba is likely to see competition for places grow in 2020-21, leading to speculation that Fred could leave.

Galatasaray and Roma are among the clubs to have been linked with the Brazilian, but he has insisted that he has no plans to leave Old Trafford.

"I want to stay here – that's my desire. I don't want to leave. As I've always said, I want to be an important player and win trophies for this club," Fred told FourFourTwo.

"[Van de Beek's arrival] means we're getting stronger and that's good for everyone at United. We need more players for this season because it will be even more demanding: the calendar is crammed and we need a strong squad to compete for every title.

"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."
