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.

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.
