Manchester United midfielder, Fred has made a bold prediction for the club, as the fight for a place amongst Europe’s elite comes to an end on Sunday, July 26.

United haven’t been in the UEFA champions league since the 2018/19 season, and look to change that by avoiding defeat against Leicester City on Sunday, and Fred believes we will win the competition in the coming 2020/21 campaign.

Speakings to the official Man United website, the Brazilian said: “As a club, we should be in the Champions League every year as we’re a massive club.

“So to be back in the Champions League is really important for us players, it’s also important for the club.

“It’s what the players and the club deserve. It will be great to be back in the Champions League next season and we will look to win.”

While Fred is absolutely right about us belonging in Europe’s biggest club competition, we have to admit we still have a lot to do to stand a chance of winning against the calibre of opposition in the UEFA Champions League.
