Darren Bent tells United who should replace Fred
- Fred is a United flop at this rate.
- Ex-striker Bent could imagine Eric Dier doing Fred's job at United.
- This would also unlock Pogba.
Fred hasn't set the world on fire at Man United. The £53m midfielder is in his second year at Old Trafford and he still has fewer than 40 games for the club. Trying to recall good ones is probably not the best idea.
Bent tells Football Insider: "I think Leicester would be a good one [for Dier], they could get the best out of him, Everton, yeah, good. Even someone like Manchester United could do with him, a holding midfielder – don’t play Fred there [as] a holding midfielder, he [Dier] plays holding, Pogba plays next to him where he can go and have a free role.
"That wouldn’t be a bad signing for them because he is someone that knows his role, will sit there in front of the back four and give that back four protection."
The 25-year-old holding midfielder is having struggles to make the starting XI for Mauricio Pochettino. He only has one league start this year and one more in the Carabao Cup.
Would you want Dier around? Who's better: Fred or Dier?
