The Guardian's Fabrizio Romano reports the Red Devils have reached a £50 million deal with Shakhtar Donetsk for Brazil worldwide midfielder Fred.

The 25-year-old midfielder is preparing for the World Cup in Russian Federation but took time to address reports regarding his future.

Belgium defender Alderweireld and Brazil midfielder Fred have both been selected for their World Cup squads.

Former Arsenal midfielder Gilberto Silva is now working as Fred's agent and he has confirmed that a move to England is appealing to his client.

And while United are now the club leading the charge for the Brazil global, Shakhtar president Rinat Akhmetov insists that he is expecting offers this summer to be no lower than the one which City submitted in January.

Despite this, the report claims United are hopeful of keeping the 22-year-old, although will listen to offers if he makes it known he wishes to leave. Though he remained in the rumour mill after, the profile of midfielder linked with the club changed to more possession-oriented types such as Thiago Alcântara, Julian Weigl and Jorginho.

"Soon after City, United talked to Shakhtar and my agents".

"I do not know what I am going to choose; maybe I will decide better after the World Cup".

Manchester United lack "Brazilian flavor" in their team and Fred would definitely bring that alongside his determined and gritty nature to win matches on the pitch.
