United signs Brazil global Fred

Manchester United have reached an agreement with Shakhtar Donetsk to sign Brazil midfielder Fred.

It is believed the 25-year-old will cost £52m, with Fred poised to be Jose Mourinho's first major summer signing.

Willian has lavished praise on new Manchester United signing Fred and revealed he encouraged his worldwide teammate to join the Premier League club. He is regarded as one of the most promising box-to-box midfielders in Europe.

He will ease the pressure on Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic in the midfield department although it raises question marks over Ander Herrera's long-term future at the club.

The highly rated 19-year-old has spent his entire career at Porto - where the current United boss once managed - and made 33 appearances in all competitions this season.

Fred's career has not been without controversy however.

United are also severely undermanned of elite defenders, having had to slot in makeshift midfielders of the likes of Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia at their full-back positions over the last several seasons.

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