Chelsea star Willian rates new Man Utd signing Fred

The speed of United's pursuit, though, has been striking and they have capitalised on the fact that both the player and Brazil coach Tite want the transfer to go through before the World Cup starts in Russian Federation next week.

How could Manchester United line up at the start of the 2018/19 season after signing Fred?

The Brazilian was a key man in the Shakhtar Donetsk side and won the Ukrainian Premier League title on three occasions for the club.

Manchester United announced the signing of Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred on Tuesday, with the Brazil worldwide penning a deal at Old Trafford.

Fred will join Manchester United this summer, the Red Devils have confirmed.

Fred also helped Shakhtar reach the Champions League knockout stages in 2017-18.




Chelsea forward Willian, who is now on worldwide duty with the 25-year-old ahead of the World Cup, believes he has a bright future and will make the grade in England.

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

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.

The 25-year-old has been in excellent form for Shakhtar since joining the club from Internacional five years ago so I'm sure the South American will prove to be a superb addition to United's squad.

Fred has reportedly passed a medical and agreed terms on a move to Old Trafford on Monday.
