Manchester United sign Fred for £52m

Diogo Dalot

The 25-year-old, who is in his country's squad for the World Cup, has been likened to compatriot Fernandinho who made the same switch from Shakthar to Manchester - although he moved to City in 2013.

Jose Mourinho personally scouted Marco Verratti back in November as the Manchester United boss considers a move for the Paris Saint-Germain star, according to reports in the British media.

Brazil worldwide midfielder Fred was reportedly undergoing his medical yesterday (Monday) ahead of a transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk.

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

Lucescu is credited for transforming Fred into a holding midfielder at Shakhtar.

Is Facebook Falling Out of Favor With Teens?
Those numbers represent a gain by Instagram (owned by Facebook ) of 19 points over three years ago , and by Snapchat of 28 points. Some 45% of teens say they use the internet "almost constantly", around twice as many as the 24% who said this in 2015.

The Brazilian is set to replace Michael Carrick who retired to join the United backroom staff at the end of last season. Fred did not return to the national team until a 3-0 friendly win over Russian Federation in March and Tite was keen for his transfer to be completed before the World Cup starts on June 14.

"Diogo Dalot to Manchester United is done", he tweeted.

'When I signed him at Shakhtar, Taison and Bernard were playing in his position. His agents flew to England in the event of an eleventh hour bid from United, however, which never came about as the Red Devils waited for City to make one before counter-bidding them.

Manchester United are also expected to announce the signing of 19-year-old Porto defender Diego Dalot soon.
