What position does Fred play and how will he affect Paul Pogba at Man Utd

Sky Sports News reporter Bridge believes Manchester United had to pay around £50m to sign the 25-year-old from the Ukrainian Premier League champions.

"Official club announcement in due course".

The eight-time capped Brazilian, who was a substitute during his country's victory against Croatia at Anfield over the weekend, joined Shakhtar in 2013 from Brazil Serie A side Internacional, becoming a crucial player for the Ukrainian giants in that time.

In December 2015, he was given a one-year ban after testing positive for a banned diuretic, which was backdated to June that year when the test was carried out.

United fans are unlikely to get much of a glimpse of Fred at the World Cup in Russian Federation, though, as he is yet to start an global under current coach Tite.

He is set to become United's first signing of the summer, with Mourinho also closing in on a deal for Porto full-back Diogo Dalot.

He's also been dubbed "the new Fernandinho" which, if true, means United have a very talented player on their hands.

"I hope he does well at Manchester United".

Although a Brazilian by birth, Eduardo played for Croatia on the global stage. One ex-teammate told the South China Morning Post: "Fred's a good player skilfully, though he's not physically strong or quick".

It turns out however that Fred wasn't hinting that he would potentially move to United, especially since Manchester City were still chasing him at the time.

United boss Jose Mourinho had a need to strengthen his midfield since the retirement of Michael Carrick and with uncertainly over the future of Marouane Fellaini. He rates youngster Scott McTominay, but Fred is an experienced Champions League player and now a Brazilian global. I am proud of him.' Lucescu said.

He is industrious, dynamic, energetic and possesses a wide array of technical qualities, which could make the Belo Horizonte born player the ideal foil for Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba.
