Manchester United have announced the signing of 25-year-old Brazilian international midfielder Fred on a five-year deal from Shakhtar Donetsk for a fee believed to be £52m ($67 million) on Thursday 21st June, 2018. 

The 25-year-old midfielder, currently on international duty at the World Cup in Russia, passed a medical on Thursday but missed his country’s opening match of the tournament – a 1-1 draw against Switzerland on Sunday due to an ankle injury — gives United manager Jose Mourinho a powerful-looking midfield, with the Brazilian set to slot in alongside Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.

Fred becomes Jose Mourinho's second signing of the summer following the arrival of defender Diogo Dalot from Porto.

It is understood the bonuses could take the deal to around £61.2m - this would make him United's third most expensive signing of all time behind Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku. Wow! 

Upon signing, the excited Midfielder told the United Website;

“This is the biggest club in the world and I am delighted to be a part of this amazing team,”

“To work with Jose Mourinho, who has won so many trophies in his time as a coach, is an opportunity not to be missed.

“I cannot wait to get started and to meet my new team-mates.

“This is a very exciting time for me with my focus now fully on the World Cup with Brazil.”
