06 June 2018

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred is expected to finalise his move to Manchester United early this week, the BBC has claimed.

With a deal having been in the pipeline for some time, Goal confirmed on Monday that the Brazil global had arrived in England to undergo a medical.

Gabriel Jesus jokes that fellow countryman Fred will always have his support, even if he is linked with a move to rival Manchester United.

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

'When I signed him at Shakhtar, Taison and Bernard were playing in his position.

Fred moved to Donetsk in 2013 and was a part of three league-winning sides.

Once personal terms are finalised, he will compete for a place in United's midfield next season with Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba, Ander Herrera and Scott McTominay.

However, Fred's career has not been without controversy.

In December 2015, he was given a one-year ban after testing positive for a banned diuretic, which was backdated to June that year when the test was carried out.

The suspension only applied to games sanctioned by South American football federation Conmebol.

Looking to make vast improvements to his faltering United team, it is thought that Mourinho will be watching the World Cup closely to unearth reinforcements for the 2018/2019 season.

The 25-year-old was spotted at the club's training ground, Carrington and has agreed a five-year contract, according to Daily star reports.
