Manchester United reach agreement to sign Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk

Today, Man Utd have agreed a deal to sign Fred....

Winger Douglas Costa trained with the rest of the team for the first time since World Cup preparations began two weeks ago.

Fred will hope to make the same impact on the Premier League as Brazilian worldwide team-mates Willian and Fernandinho, who also arrived in England via spells with Shakhtar.

Jose Mourinho will be pleased to have wrapped up the deal quickly and added the versatile midfielder to his squad well ahead of the start of the 2018/19 campaign.

A native of Belo Horizonte, Fred has been capped seven times by the Selecao.

Giuliani says Mueller's team is trying to frame Trump
His attacks come as the special counsel and Trump's legal team negotiate whether the president will sit down for an interview. He made it clear Trump's legal team would combat any effort to force the president to testify in front of a grand jury.

"A further announcement will be made in due course". In 2015, he tested positive for the banned substance hydrochlorothiazide while representing Brazil in the Copa America.

The Manchester United boss has tipped the Three Lions to top Group G - where they would be paired with Poland should Mourinho's premonitions come true.

He will become only the seventh Brazilian to play for United after fellow countrymen Anderson, Rafael, Fabio, Kleberson, Andreas Pereira and Rodrigo Possebon.

Possebon, now a sporting director, has no doubts that Fred is ready for the Premier League.

Instead, he is an all-action midfielder who is strong in the tackle, resourceful on the ball and able to move his team up the pitch through lung-busting runs forward. His standout quality is undoubtedly his dribbling ability. One ex-teammate told the South China Morning Post: "Fred's a good player skilfully, though he's not physically strong or quick. Maybe Jose Mourinho has seen something in Fred which he thinks can improve his side". Michael Carrick's retirement has only heightened the need for another commanding midfield presence. "They have experience, they have top players, they have the right mentality".
