Manchester United are expecting a 'big season' from Fred after a difficult first campaign with the club.

Fred, 26, arrived from Shakhtar Donetsk for £52million but only started 20 matches and tallied one goal in a fraught season.

However, coach Tite overlooked Fred and the midfielder had to request permission from United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to miss the Perth leg of United's pre-season schedule.

"And we hope to provide that for our attackers and midfielders and we believe Fred is going to have a big season as well."

Fred displayed glimpses of his ability in the Champions League knockout comeback at Paris Saint-Germain and the quarter-final first leg with Barcelona, but the Brazilian was omitted from the matchday squad against Chelsea last week.

"We've got a couple more weeks after this where we can put loads of work on the training ground and after the international break it's too busy with games to do training.

Fred featured in the Singapore win over Inter Milan and came on against Tottenham in Shanghai before going onto play in the shootout win over AC Milan in Cardiff, but is effectively fifth-choice midfielder.
