Man Utd target quick Fred deal as he visits England next week

Manchester United transfer news In-demand Shakhtar Donetsk star Fred ‘honoured’ by Red Devils interest

Manchester United are expected to spend big this summer as they aim to close the gap on rivals Manchester City. The Red Devils have finalised a fee of around £44m for the transfer which is slightly lesser than the midfielder's £53m release clause.

United have made enquiries for Fred and Shakhtar reportedly rejected City's 50m euros (£43.7m) offer in January.

However, speaking at a press conference while with the Brazil national team, Fred has claimed he will only address his playing future after the World Cup.

It is thought that Fred would form a crucial part of a three man midfield alongside Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.

"I don't know what I'm going to choose, maybe I'll decide better after the World Cup".

The Times says United want to seal a deal for Fred while he's over in the UK for the game. We understand #MUFC & Shakhtar are in advanced talks over a possible transfer. But also, a squad with three or four Brazilian athletes, depending on their profile, can not make a great team too.

With Michael Carrick retiring and Marouane Fellaini leaving, the arrival of Fred signals the start of a new era for United.

Belgium worldwide Marouane Fellaini is set to become a free agent this summer unless the Red Devils can strike a new deal with the midfielder.

Fred's performances for Internacional, who won back-to-back regional championships with him in the side, attracted the interest of Shakhtar Donetsk. But I believe I have a versatility on the pitch and I'm a multi-skilled player, being able to play in both midfield positions.
