Fenerbahçe midfielder Fred and his wife Monique Salum took to their Instagram account to announce that they are expecting another child.
Fred, the former Manchester United player, and his partner already have a son, named Benjamin, and are expecting a second baby boy.
Monique Salum made the announcement with the following caption: “God with His infinite kindness and love showing us how perfect He is! Our family is growing!”
“Come on baby boy, you can’t imagine how it was planned and dreamed about by us and your little brother! 🤍”
“Children are a heritage from the Lord, a reward from him. Psalms 127:3”.
The snaps which were captioned in Portuguese by the wife of Fred, showed their immense joy as the family of three were all smiles.
The Turkish outfit reached a verbal agreement with the Red Devils which saw Fred depart the club he is fond of.
Fabrizio Romano revealed that the transfer of the midfielder was set as both the Premier League Club and the Turkish Süper Lig club reached an agreement.
Manchester United accepted 10 million euros plus 5 million euros in add-ons and the former Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder left the club.
Fred was an important player for Manchester United over the past few years but fell down the pecking order following the arrival of Erik ten Hag from Ajax.
Fred signed for Manchester United in the summer of 2018 and has featured in 213 different games while contributing to 33 different goals.
He saw playing minutes decrease at Manchester United over the past few seasons, but remained a vital member of their first squad.
Under the new leadership of Erik ten Hag, the Brazilian featured in 56 games and created 12 goals.

Monique Salum, who is she?
Monique, the wife of Fred, was born in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro on March 31, 1994. Despite the fact that she hasn’t revealed much about her parents, we believe they provided the Brazilian beauty with a happy childhood.
Rather than sitting on her parents’ money, she was motivated to create something of her own. Her work became much more accessible because she had supportive parents.
