FRED AVAILABLE FOR NEWCASTLE ENCOUNTER
Manchester United can confirm Fred is now available for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Newcastle United.
The midfielder is set to miss the Old Trafford fixture and Tuesday’s Champions League opener with Young Boys, after Brazil invoked the five-day rule on their Premier League internationals who did not play in World Cup qualifiers after receiving call-ups.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hoped common sense would prevail, as travelling to South America would have meant 10 days in quarantine upon return, and described it as a ‘lose-lose-lose’ situation for all parties involved.
With Ole admitting Scott McTominay is probably not yet fit to play following a groin operation, this will be a welcome development for the Reds boss.
