REVEALED: Mourinho told Fred he was set for Man Utd exit

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho was ready to bounce out Fred when in charge of Manchester United.

The Telegraph says Old Trafford bosses recruited Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk for £52million in the summer of 2018, despite the club's recruitment department and Mourinho not being in favour.

They pressed ahead with the transfer because of a failure to source a preferred alternative.

Fred flopped in the opening months of his maiden campaign as United struggled for form under Mourinho.

And, after being replaced in the 2-1 defeat to Valencia in the Champions League in December 2018, the Brazilian's relationship with Mourinho reached boiling point.

Mourinho said, “Your days at this club are numbered," after the final whistle.

The rest is history as the former Chelsea boss was axed less than a week later while Fred has rebuilt his career at the club.
