Manchester United are now willing to buy Fred after the retirement of Michael Carrick. Shakhtar has valued the Brazilian ace for 40 million euros and Manchester United are willing to meet the asking price.

Jose Mourinho is keen on signing at least one midfielder to bolster his squad and only buy second if Fellaini decided to leave Manchester United. The Portuguese tactician’s top target for midfield is Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Juventus defender Alex Sandro are more complicated due to higher competitions and demands.

According to sources, Manchester City has moved their interest from the 25-year-old midfielder making it easier for Manchester United to sign him without many difficulties. The signing amount of the midfielder will be around 40 million euros which are the one-third of the total amount Jose is going to get for the reinforcement of squad for challenging for all the trophies at stake.

Fred has earned himself quite a name following his performance for both his club and the national team. He also has seven caps for Brazil and he will discover on Tuesday if he makes to the Brazilian squad for the world cup this year. The Menais Gerais born Midfielder certainly has pace and power to carry forward the attacks and defend which Manchester United often lacks.

Author’s take:

The Brazilian ace Fred is clearly one of the biggest prospects in the footballing world right now with so many years to go and improve to be more better and clinical. Fred is good and both attacking and defending and tracks back with large intensity.

The 23-year-old midfielder makes his presence felt with clinical tackles and pin-point crossing abilities while going forward. His finishing in front of goals is also very accurate and precise. With so many years in his playing career, he is going to improve a lot and can be more complete as a player with maturity and experience.
