  • Fred was spotted arriving for medical at Carrington on Monday

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.

The Brazil worldwide midfielder completed his move from Shakhtar Donetsk to Manchester United.

Fred made his Brazil debut in November 2014 and, due to an injury to Luiz Gustavo, was a starter by the time of Brazil's disappointing 2015 Copa America campaign.

Fred completed his move to Manchester United earlier this week and the Brazilian's team-mates were seen congratulating him in training.

In recent years he has worked his way into the Brazil worldwide set up and was last month named in manager Tite's 23-man squad for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

He faced United in the Champions League at Old Trafford during David Moyes' reign, and also played against Manchester City in last season's competition as Shakhtar reached the last 16.


The Brazil worldwide dropped a huge hint that he was Manchester United-bound at the weekend before swiftly deleting a tweet revealing his location. He'll also be the third player to have played for both United and Internacional after Anderson, Possebon and Forlan.

"He's very happy to come to the Premier League to play, we talked a little bit about that", added Willian, who switched to Chelsea in the summer of 2013. One ex-teammate told the South China Morning Post: "Fred's a good player skilfully, though he's not physically strong or quick".

Brazil legend Rivaldo is confident Fred can be a success in England but urged United fans to be patient with the midfielder.

The question remains, however, will Mourinho's big spending really make a dent on the gulf between the Red Devils and Man City next season?

"He is a wonderful player", the former world footballer of the year said.
