Reports have suggested City are weighing up a move for Fred as they look to add to their attacking options for next season.

City are in the market for a new striker having sold Carlos Tevez to Juventus and Fred is one of several names to be linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium.

The 29-year-old impressed in the Confederations Cup, scoring twice in Sunday's 3-0 final win over Spain and finishing the tournament with five goals.

When asked about the City rumour Fluminense's director of football Rodrigo Caetano told ESPN Brazil: "Fred is under contract with Fluminense, he is very happy at the club and we are very satisfied with him."

Fred admits it would have to be a "great offer" for him to leave Fluminense after joining the club in 2009 from Lyon.

"I am doing great at Fluminense and I will only leave the club if there is a really great offer," noted Fred.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
