Manchester United Complete Signing of Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk

Man Utd announce transfer deal to sign Brazil midfielder Fred

With 12 of his players featuring in Russian Federation - including new signing Fred -Mourinho faces the prospect of preparing for the new season without the bulk of his first-team squad.

Footage of Fred's performance at Old Trafford have now emerged on YouTube and they show what kind of player Mourinho has signed.

In about eight days, United fans are likely to get much of a glimpse of their new signing at the World Cup in Russian Federation, though, he is yet to start an worldwide match under current coach Tite.

"A further announcement will be made in due course", is how the Red Devils ended their statement, but Fred is a Red and that's nothing but good news for the club.

In terms of where he would play, Mourinho switched from his traditional 4-2-3-1 formation to a 4-3-3, which did see United improve their style of play marginally.

Willian has revealed that Fred has spoken of his excitement at signing for Manchester United after he was confirmed as the club's first recruit on Tuesday. Today, Man Utd have agreed a deal to sign Fred....

There are good reasons why Fred, who could make his World Cup debut against Switzerland, has gone under the radar, as Brazilian journalist Alex Sabino points out. Michael Carrick's retirement has only heightened the need for another commanding midfield presence.

Though he is often compared to his Brazilian compatriot Fernandinho, Fred is a slightly different player, in the sense that he is more attack minded than his counterpart. In 2015, he tested positive for the banned substance hydrochlorothiazide while representing Brazil in the Copa America.

"I think France, no problems, will finish first", Mourinho said. The 25-year old can be used in a three-man midfield along with Pogba and Matic. He's played five years for Shakhtar, but still didn't become their top player.
