The midfield enforcer has been a peripheral figure at Old Trafford this season.

He cost the Red Devils an eye watering £52m from Shakhtar Donetsk but has barely featured.

The 25-year-old hasn’t played since United’s FA Cup win over Reading.

However, Fred has claimed on social media that he’s ready to get the nod from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to play in the Champions League.

He wrote on Twitter: “Ready for tomorrow! Come on @manchesterunited!”

Solskjaer claimed last week that the Brazilian will eventually get his chance.

“Fred is exactly like everyone else,” Solskjaer explained.

“You know he’s going to be able to contribute and he will contribute, don’t worry about that.”

“He’s a good lad, same with Andreas [Pereira], he’s working really hard, you’ve got Scott [McTominay].”

Solskjaer has suggested Fred initially found the rigours of the Premier League tough.

“We know there’s a very, very good player there with Fred so hopefully he’ll adjust to the English game because there’s no doubt there’s talent, absolutely no doubt,” he added.

“It’s always difficult to come here. One, it’s Man United, you’re expected to perform straight away.

“Two, it’s an English league that he’s not used to.

“But he’s a Brazilian international, Andreas is a Brazilian international, the talent is there and when they get the chance the next time it’s easier to come into a team that’s doing well.”

United battered Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Paul Pogba – who has been in resurgent form under Solskjaer – bagged a brace.

The France international claimed after the game that the Norwegian chief is giving the players confidence.

“I think we’ve had games where we’ve played much better and haven’t scored three goals,” he said.

“I think in the first half we didn’t control the game but we scored two goals and after that we got another and then controlled it.

“I always say playing altogether with the lads, attacking together, defending together helps everyone.

“The good atmosphere helps the team, and for me, being more in the box gives me more chances to score.

“I think Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] is just being himself. He isn’t acting and he can give joy to everyone and confidence to everyone.

“There’s still along way to go and we have a lot of big games coming up.

“Next is Paris St-Germain and then we have to keep trying to get three points in the league.”
