Manchester United agree £52m Fred fee with Shakhtar Donetsk

Manchester United have today revealed that they have agreed on a deal with Shakhtar Donetsk to bring Brazilian midfielder Fred to the club.

His signing represents Jose Mourinho's first foray into the transfer market this summer ahead of a season in which the Portuguese coach will be expected to challenge rivals Manchester City domestically.

Fred will hope to make the same impact on the Premier League as Brazilian worldwide team-mates Willian and Fernandinho, who also arrived in England via spells with Shakhtar.

Manchester United have announced their first signing of the summer off season - Brazil worldwide Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos, better known as Fred. With a midfielder already purchased in Fred, tabs will be kept on potential defensive improvements such as the often-linked Marquinhos recently dropped by Tite in favour of PSG teammate Thiago Silva. I am happy for him.




Fred would be a necessary replacement for United, who are short of two central midfielders following Michael Carrick's retirement and Marouane Fellaini's looming free agency.

Which team are you supporting in the 2018 World Cup?

Manchester United ended last season without a trophy, as the Red Devils missed out on the FA Cup following their final defeat by Chelsea FC at Wembley.

Reports from the UK also claim that rising Porto star, Diego Dalot, is also likely to sign for Manchester United within the week, pending the outcome of a medical at Carrington.
