It is believed the 25-year-old will cost £52m, with Fred poised to be Jose Mourinho's first major summer signing.

With a full name of Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos, it is little wonder he's called Fred for simplicity.

"Official club announcement in due course".

Fred would be a necessary replacement for United, who are short of two central midfielders following Michael Carrick's retirement and Marouane Fellaini's looming free agency.

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

"The 19-year-old has complete his medical and agreed personal terms".

Rumours were rife that the Red Devils had been chasing Fred since even before the English Premier League season had ended last month. He has a lot of qualities.

According to the same article, Verratti is one of a number of big-name transfer targets being considered by Manchester United this summer. I am happy for him.

Which team are you supporting in the 2018 World Cup? Pep Guardiola was very impressed when Fred played against Manchester City for Shakhtar in the Champions League in 2017-18.

The 29-year-old, who has scored eight times in 55 global appearances, felt last season was a good one personally but was coy about his plans after the summer.

"I don't have any more to say about my club because now I want to have focus here with the national team on the World Cup".
