Kenya: Manchester United confirm Fred deal complete | The Standard - Kenya

Man Utd transfer news Chelsea star Willian has been linked with a summer switch

Do you think Fred will be valuable for United?

His worldwide boss Tite wants the move confirmed well before his side's World Cup opener against Switzerland in Rostov on 17th June, so that Fred's mind can be entirely on providing competition for the likes of Casemiro and Fernandinho in the midfield.

But Rivaldo, who helped Brazil to win the World Cup in 2002, believes Fred will have no such problems.

The 25-year old has also featured in the UEFA Champions League being a vital player for his manager Paulo Fonseca, as Shakhtar Donetsk reached the rounds of 16 from a pretty hard group featuring Manchester City, Napoli and Feyenoord.

"He's very happy to come to the Premier League to play".

What time is the World Cup on and where can I watch it in Hong Kong?

Fred can be a great signing for the Red Devils as the Brazilian will only add to Jose's armoury.

However, we are here to discuss the success stories, so take a look at five active players who played for Shakhtar Donetsk and also found success elsewhere.

In recent years he has worked his way into the Brazil global set up and was last month named in manager Tite's 23-man squad for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation. He rates youngster Scott McTominay, but Fred is an experienced Champions League player and now a Brazilian worldwide.

"A further announcement will be made in due course". I am proud of him.' Lucescu said.

Fred often played as a midfielder for Shakhtar in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

It is likely he will slip straight into United's first team next season and make up a three-man midfield with Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic. The retirement of Michael Carrick has left a huge hole to fill in that department.

Brazil coach Tite had said he wanted his players' domestic futures sorted before the tournament in Russian Federation, which starts on 14 June.

United now miss that desire in their midfield, if not in the team hotel the night before games.
