Manchester United Announce Agreement on Deal for Fred

Man Utd transfer news Chelsea star Willian has been linked with a summer switch

The 25-year-old will cost the English giant a reported fee of about 52 million pounds (US$69 million) and give Mourinho a powerful-looking midfield, with the Brazilian set to slot in alongside Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.

Manchester United have announced their first summer signing and it is the Brazilian worldwide Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk.

United revealed the news in a brief statement on their official website, promising a further announcement "in due course".

Fred is now expected to complete the formalities of the move and become a United player before heading off to Russian Federation for the World Cup where he's due to play a key role for Brazil in their group games against Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia.

Handed his debut by Dunga in 2014, Fred's worldwide career was disrupted after testing positive for the diuretic hydrochlorothiazide during the 2015 Copa America.

Willian has tipped incoming Manchester United midfielder Fred to be a big hit in the Premier League.

Mr Trump originally imposed the tariffs in March, saying a reliance on imported metals threatened national security. At a heated meeting in the Canadian ski resort, the European Union and Canada threatened to retaliate.

Although the club is renowned for its history with Brazilian players, some non-Brazilian players have also established themselves with the former Europa League champions.

"Diogo Dalot to Manchester United is done", he tweeted. "He's a versatile midfielder, can play any position in the centre of the park, but his best role is as a box-to-box midfielder, because of his capacity to defend, create and finish".

Before he gets his chance to shine for United, Fred will first attempt to try to help Brazil lift the World Cup for the first time since Rivaldo was part of the victorious squad in Japan and South Korea 16 years ago.

He can also play off both feet and boasts the kind of work ethic prized by Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho.

"I'm really pleased Fred has completed his transfer to Manchester United". He rates youngster Scott McTominay, but Fred is an experienced Champions League player and now a Brazilian worldwide.

"He is a wonderful player", the Betfair ambassador said.
