Fred: Manchester United agree deal for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder

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

An energetic box to box midfielder with a fine left-foot, the 25-year-old Fred has been a key cog in Shakhtar's recent success, helping them to three league titles and three Ukrainian Cup wins.

Manchester United have confirmed their first signing of the summer in the shape of midfielder Fred from Ukrainian giants Shakhtar Donetsk and the club's fans are delighted.

New Manchester United signing Fred has been spotted in the club's training ground, only the image is from the a year ago...

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.

The Brazil global dropped a huge hint that he was Manchester United-bound at the weekend before swiftly deleting a tweet revealing his location.

Possebon, now a sporting director, has no doubts that Fred is ready for the Premier League.

The memo also says that, "under our system of government, the president is not readily available to be interviewed". But that is far from settled. "He tells America instantly ... how he feels about this investigation".

Fred has already participated in the promotional activities associated with the announcement ahead of joining back up with the Brazilian national squad. He'll also be the third player to have played for both United and Internacional after Anderson, Possebon and Forlan.

The Red Devils say they will announce the deal in the near future.

"He's very happy to come to the Premier League to play, we talked a little bit about that".

Jose Mourinho is in the market for at least one new midfielder as Michael Carrick has moved into a coaching role following his retirement while Marouane Fellaini is set to leave when his contract expires later this month. He rates youngster Scott McTominay, but Fred is an experienced Champions League player and now a Brazilian global.

Instead, the Portuguese boss intends to play a three-man midfield with Nemanja Matic included.

"He is a wonderful player", Rivaldo said.
