Fred Will Listen To 'Good Offers'

Brazil striker Fred has many admirers after his star turn at the Confederation’s Cup and says he is now willing to listen to “really good offers”.

The 29-year-old number nine has the poacher’s knack for being in the right place at the right time.

He was joint-top scorer at the Confed Cup with five goals, and his finishes against Uruguay and Spain in particular showed his deft eye for the back of the net.

Fred currently plies his trade for Fluminense in Brazil, where his record is prolific. He has scored 59 goals in 87 starts since his return home from Europe in 2009.

Before that, he played at French giants Lyon for four successful seasons, during which he won three Ligue 1 titles and one French Cup, although he only managed to score 34 goals in the process.

Fred has exploded back to life in the past few seasons, after he left European club football with a bag of silverware, but without realising his full potential, and after refusing to return to France following a loan deal from Lyon.

But his stellar displays for Brazil have brought him back into the limelight, with Manchester City manager, Manuel Pellegrini, thought to be considering him as a replacement for Carlos Tevez.

Fluminense’s director of football, Rodrigo Caetano, told ESPN Brazil that Fred is “under contract” and “satisfied at the club.”

But the player himself has hinted that while he is indeed content on Brazil, he is not averse to moving.

“I am doing great at Fluminense and I will only leave the club if there is a really great offer,” he said.
