Manchester United agree deal to sign Brazil midfielder Fred

first_imgUnited announced the deal in a brief statement on their official website, which read: “Manchester United is delighted to announce it has reached agreement with Shakhtar Donetsk for the transfer of Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos (Fred).“A further announcement will be made in due course.”Fred becomes the first major summer signing by United boss Mourinho, who is also reportedly closing in on a deal for Porto defender Diogo Dalot.United finished second in the Premier League behind City but were a whopping 19 points behind their fierce rivals.Despite their highest league finish since Alex Ferguson retired, Mourinho was heavily criticised for adopting cautious tactics in several big games as United were often made to look ponderous in comparison to stylish City’s commitment to attack.And beating City to the signature of Fred, who was a target for the English champions in January, could prove to be a significant first step.Fred caught the eye in Shakhtar’s run to the last-16 of the Champions League, where the Ukrainians only lost out on away goals to Roma.A stunning free-kick in the first leg of that tie was a glimpse of what Fred’s talented left foot can produce.However, he is far more of a creator than goalscorer as his record of just 15 goals in five years at Shakhtar suggests.– Midfield boost –United are in need of midfield reinforcements with Michael Carrick retiring and Marouane Fellaini out of contract.Mourinho’s task will now be to harness Fred’s passing ability, while also finally getting the best out of Pogba in his third season since an £89 million move from Juventus.Fred will hope to make the same impact on the Premier League as Brazilian international team-mates Willian and Fernandinho, who also arrived in England via spells with Shakhtar.United fans are unlikely to get much of a glimpse of Fred at the World Cup in Russia, though, as he is yet to start an international under current coach Tite.Handed his debut by Dunga in 2014, Fred’s international career was disrupted after testing positive for the diuretic hydrochlorothiazide during the 2015 Copa America.He was banned from international football for a year by South America’s governing body CONMEBOL, but only missed four months for Shakhtar as FIFA did not extend the ban to cover all confederations until February 2016.Fred did not return to the national team until a 3-0 friendly win over Russia in March and Tite was keen for his transfer to be completed before the World Cup starts on June 14.“Players are always thinking of their careers. What you say is please resolve it as soon as possible so we can get them focused back on the task in hand with the national team,” he said after Saturday’s 2-0 win over Croatia at Anfield, in which Fred featured as a substitute.“If I was a club manager, I would be looking to sign him.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Brazil’s midfielder Fred is joining Manchester United © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Jun 5 – Manchester United announced on Tuesday they have agreed a deal to sign Brazilian international midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk as Jose Mourinho seeks the magic formula to topple Premier League Champions Manchester City.The 25-year-old will cost the English giants a reported fee of more than £50 million ($67 million) and give Mourinho a powerful-looking midfield, with the Brazilian set to slot in alongside Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.last_img read more
