Fred has not travelled with Manchester United’s squad for their pre-season tour of the United States.

The Brazil international has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, with Fulham among the clubs who are keen on a deal.

United have announced that Fred is missing from the squad due to a ‘personal issue’ but ‘is expected to join up with the rest of the squad shortly’.

Alex Telles and Eric Bailly are also missing from United’s initial squad list as they aim to complete their departures.

Telles, who spent last season on loan at Sevilla, is on the verge of joining Saudi Pro League side Al-Nassr in a deal worth £4m.

Bailly, meanwhile, is also looking for a new club and continues to train away from the first-team squad.
