Manchester United Agree Deal To Sign Shakhtar Donetsk Midfielder Fred

Diogo Dalot only made his first-team debut for Porto in February

The Brazil worldwide has joined Man United on a five-year deal from Ukrainian champions Shakhtar Donetsk and is the first Old Trafford incoming of the summer.

Fred has made just eight appearances for Brazil but is part of their 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, and 2002 victor Rivaldo believes the midfielder will be the right fit for United.

Steve Nicol explains why Fred is a great addition to Manchester United's midfield and why the club were smart to seal the move before the World Cup.

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

I hope he does well at Manchester United'. With a midfielder already purchased in Fred, tabs will be kept on potential defensive improvements such as the often-linked Marquinhos recently dropped by Tite in favour of PSG teammate Thiago Silva.
