Man United agrees to deal for Fred

Manchester United have agreed a deal with Shakhtar Donetsk for midfielder Fred and are also set to sign Diogo Dalot from Porto.

He was previously linked with a move to Man City but Pep Guardiola cooled his interested in the man who has eight caps for Brazil and is heading to the 2018 World Cup this summer.

Manchester United have confirmed on their official website that midfielder Fred will be at Old Trafford next season.

Fred continued to bag silverwares after leaving Brazil to join Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk.

However, he is far more of a creator than goalscorer as his record of just 15 goals in five years at Shakhtar suggests.

United fans are unlikely to get much of a glimpse of Fred at the World Cup in Russian Federation, though, as he is yet to start an global under current coach Tite.

The authorities in Ukraine have been sharply criticised for faking the murder of a Russian dissident journalist in Kiev . In a video showing him greeting Babchenko, he said: "I am absolutely convinced there was no other way".

Fred was handed a two-year ban between July 2015 and July 2017 after he tested positive for the diuretic hydrochlorothiazide during Copa America.

"He is excited to start but now is the time to think about the World Cup". However, FIFA extended the punishment to a worldwide ban in 2016 which ruled him out for four months.

In a decision that may not sit well with his powerful Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku at Utd, Mourinho chooses the other Red Devils to finish second behind England in group G. According to Jose, England will play Robert Lewandowski and Poland in the Last 16.

"Players are always thinking of their careers". The Brazilian skipper gave Fred a hug before they took to the field.

"If I was a club manager, I would be looking to sign him".
