Premier League giants Manchester United have, on Thursday, been afforded a welcome boost on the financial front.
This comes courtesy of some savvy work on the transfer front.
First, as confirmed by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Red Devils shot-stopper Matěj Kovář has sealed a permanent move to the Bundesliga, with Bayer Leverkusen.
The 23-year-old, for those not familiar with his name, has been on the books at Old Trafford since back in 2018.
Despite never featuring at senior level for the club, however, a fine loan spell with Sparta Prague in his home country of the Czech Republic last season saw interest in Kovář's services begin to mount.
In turn, on Thursday, he has been snapped up by the aforementioned Leverkusen, for a fee understood to be in the region of €9 million.
The outgoings on the red half of Manchester have not ended there, though.
This comes with even more significant news having just come to the fore, in the form of confirmation of Fred’s imminent exit.
In further news broken by Fabrizio Romano, it has been revealed that a deal between United and Turkish giants Fenerbahce is now in place, for midfielder Fred to link up with the latter on a permanent basis.
The Brazilian international has already agreed to the personal terms of a contract with Fener, with medical tests having therefore been pencilled in for some point over the next week.
The transfer is expected to net Manchester United a figure of around €15 million, including bonuses.
