The Brazilian midfielder had been set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the campaign before the club activated a 12-month extension clause in his contract this week.
Fred has been limited to just four Premier League starts this season after the arrivals of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen.
Midfield remains the main priority for Erik ten Hag, who would love to sign Jude Bellingham from Dortmund this summer window.
However, the Dutchman would need to create room in midfield in order to lure the England star to Old Trafford.
Though Ten Hag admires Fred’s tenacity and fitness levels, he wants players that are better at dominating their opponents so that his team can play on the front foot.
Paris Saint-Germain are already blessed with Marco Verratti and they want more dynamism in their midfield to counter-balance a front three of Lionel Messi, Mbappe and Lionel Messi.
But, while the Red Devils are willing to let Fred go, the Sun claim they’re seeking £30m for the Brazilian.
Manchester United spent £52m on Fred in 2018 and the Brazil international has played 174 games for the club in four-and-a-half-years.
