Manchester United have agreed a deal to sign the Brazilian midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk.
The highly rated box-to-box midfielder could be the ideal partner for Nemanja Matic next season. His arrival will also allow Paul Pogba to play in a free role behind the forwards.
As per the report, Manchester United are paying €50 million for the 25-yr-old Brazilian.
The Red Devils wanted to sign Milinkovic-Savic from Serie A but Lazio are holding out for a fee of around €100 million. It seems Fred is an alternative to the Serbian.
Manchester United’s midfield needed strengthening and the fans will be delighted to see that Mourinho has addressed a key weakness right at the start of the window.
The Old Trafford outfit should now look to improve their defensive options if they want to challenge Manchester City next season.
