With Michael Carrick retiring and Marouane Fellaini seemingly on his way out too, Mourinho required a new central midfielder, hence the interest in Fred.

Fred joined Shakhtar from Brazilian side Internacional in 2013.

Sources have told ESPN FC the deal for the 25-year-old is worth around €55 million, which could rise to €60m with add-ons.

De Gea was once again voted as United's Player of the Season as they finished runners up to Manchester City.

He picked 2010 World Cup winners Spain winning Group B with his native Portugal coming runners-up.

Fred becomes the first major summer signing by United boss Mourinho, who is also reportedly closing in on a deal for Porto defender Diogo Dalot.

Rivaldo, a World Cup victor in 2002, enjoyed a playing career that saw him represent clubs in Angola, Greece, Italy, Spain, and Uzbekistan as well as his native Brazil.




Fred made his Brazil debut in November 2014 and, due to an injury to Luiz Gustavo, was a starter by the time of Brazil's disappointing 2015 Copa America campaign.

Socceroos fans will be bouncing for joy at the news that their team is being backed by one of the shrewdest tacticians in world football - Manchester United manager Mourinho.

He was at the centre of controversy in 2015 after testing positive for the the diuretic hydrochlorothiazide during the Copa America in Chile, and was banned for a year as a result.

"It's very hard, I don't want to be emotional but I have to be", the Portuguese coach told RT.

Juan Mata cost United £40.26 million (R690.86 million) in 2013, while midfielder Nemanja Matic cost the club £40.23 million (R690.34 million) past year.

"I think Russian Federation has to finish second and the crucial match will be Russian Federation against Egypt", he said.

"He is a wonderful player", the former world footballer of the year said.
