Manchester United Complete Signing of Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk

Manchester United have announced their first signing of the summer off season - Brazil worldwide Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos, better known as Fred.

United saw off competition from Manchester City to land Fred, who is set to move to the Premier League after five seasons in Ukraine.

The 25-year-old is expected to cost United a reported £52 million ($69 million).

He congratulated Fred on his £52million move to Manchester United.

The paperwork for the deal is nearly complete and the deal will be announced very soon.




"Official club announcement in due course". He has a lot of qualities.

United are also severely undermanned of elite defenders, having had to slot in makeshift midfielders of the likes of Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia at their full-back positions over the last several seasons.

The article says that Mourinho watched Verratti in action during Italy's World Cup playoff defeat to Sweden at the Friends Arena in Stockholm a year ago. Pep Guardiola was very impressed when Fred played against Manchester City for Shakhtar in the Champions League in 2017-18. "So I think Argentina and Portugal can do well".

Brazil play Austria in their final warm-up game on Sunday before starting their World Cup campaign in Russian Federation with a match against Switzerland on June 17.

Fred came on as a second-half substitute in Sunday's 2-0 friendly win over Croatia at Anfield but remained coy when asked about United's interest.
