Ahead of the January transfer window, reports in Italy claim Manchester United are interested in swapping Fred for an Inter Milan midfielder.

According to Italian media outlet Corriere dello Sport, Manchester United are open to selling Fred, despite his recent resurgence in the first-team, and could use the Brazilian as a makeweight in a deal to sign Christian Eriksen.

United were interested in the Dane prior to signing Bruno Fernandes and reports from Italy claim the club will try to sign Eriksen in January.

However, Manchester Evening News insists Eriksen isn’t a transfer target for Manchester United.
