Fred to Manchester United 


Manchester United have today agreed to sign Shaktar Donetsk midfielder Fred and the Brazilian midfielder is reportedly valued at £47 million. 

Fred has been included in the Brazil World Cup squad and is named amongst some of the best players in the world. 

Brazil manager Tite has said he wants Fred’s domestic decision to be made before the start of the World Cup. This will however work in the favour of Man united with his price likely to inflate as a consequence of successful trip to Russia. 

In his domestic career Fred has played a key role in Shakhtar’s recent success. Most noteworthy being three league title and four Ukrainian super league trophy ’s. 

Between 2007 and 2013 Fred play alongside fellow countryman Willian, who only has good things to say about the midfielder.

“He has a lot of quality, he can improve a lot,” he said. “He goes to one of the best teams in the world and I’m happy for him. I hope he does well at Manchester United.”

The Numbers

Age – 25

Hight – 169cm

Position – Midfield (Center)

Club appearances – 101

Domestic goals – 10 

Estimated Value – £47 Million 

Also on the radar 

United also set their sights on a 19 year old defender that goes by the name Diogo Dalot. The young man from Porto has a release clause of £17.4 million a figure that United are happy to match for such talent. Dalot is understood to have already had his medical with the club while he waits for the deal to go through.

As a result of a new defender in the ranks the writing could be on the wall for current players. Players likely to leave if the deal goes ahead are Italian and Dutch full backs Darmian and Blind. Both aforementioned players are out of favour with the current boss.
