Rio De JAneiro: Brazil striker Fred has declared his wish to remain at Rio de Janeiro club Fluminense after reportedly attracting interest from English side Manchester City.

The 29-year-old scored five goals from as many matches in Brazil’s triumphant Confederations Cup campaign last month, reports Xinhua.

His prolific form for both club and country has also caught the eye of Turkey’s Fenerbahce.

“We don’t know what will happen in the future but right now I don’t see myself leaving Fluminense,” Fred told Radio Brasil.

“I have a long contract with Fluminense and my intention is to see it out.”

It is understood the former Lyon forward doesn’t want to move to a club where he is not guaranteed a regular first-team place so close to the World Cup.

The striker finished top goalscorer in the Brasil’s Serie A last season to help his side clinch their fourth title, netting 20 in 28 appearances.

With Carlos Tevez having left the Premier League for Juventus, City manager Manuel Pellegrini is in the market for new blood up front, with Napoli striker Edinson Cavani the subject of an offer.

Fred is one of several names to be linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium due to his impressive display at the Confederations Cup.
