Fred future

Fred in action for Shakhtar Donetsk on October 17, 2017

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred is understood to be on the verge of joining Manchester United in a £52m deal.

The Brazil international was previously wanted by Manchester City, but United emerged as frontrunners for his signature after City dropped their interest in January.

Fred is now expected to undergo a medical and agree personal terms for a four-year deal with the option of an extra 12 months at Old Trafford.

The 25-year-old is set to become Jose Mourinho's first signing of the summer.
