However, despite the 19-year-old making just three starts and three substitute outings this season, Fred has said that he has high hopes for the prospect.
Speaking to Trivela, the Brazilian said: "All are very good - they are not in this profession for nothing - but the player who impresses me most is Jimmy Garner.
"Not just because he is in the same position as me, but because he is a player who has an impressive vision of the game, and he has a huge future for United.
"In addition to his impressive game vision, he always plays with his head up, has an impressive shot and is an incredible passer. He is a player that I admire a lot."
Garner has not made a senior outing for United since the middle of December. body check tags ::
