Brazil legend Rivaldo: 'Fred right fit for Manchester United'

07 June, 2018, 02:34 | Author: Carla Brady
  • Fred was spotted arriving for medical at Carrington on Monday

Manchester United are also expected to announce the signing of 19-year-old Porto defender Diego Dalot soon.

Fred seemed to be one of the major targets for the side and signing him this quickly can only mean good things for the club.

Managerial mastermind Jose Mourinho continues his World Cup 2018 predictions by picking Brazil to finishing atop Group E and a surprise 2nd place selection that sees Nemanja Matic scoring a cheeky holiday.

Manchester United did reach the FA Cup final, but they were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea FC at Wembley last month.

Though he is often compared to his Brazilian compatriot Fernandinho, Fred is a slightly different player, in the sense that he is more attack minded than his counterpart.




United released the following statement on agreeing a deal for Fred.

He is primarily left footed, he seems to adept with using his right foot and is quick with the ball at his feet.

But with Mourinho desperate to mount a proper title challenge next term, Spanish outlet Don Balon, who are renowned for their outlandish transfer claims, say the manager is refusing to sell his top shot-stopper.

Fred is a supremely talented player that is an all-round central midfield lynchpin that will add more solidity and mobility to a midfield that sometimes struggled with teams that sat back in huge numbers.

United now miss that desire in their midfield, if not in the team hotel the night before games. He'll also face a significant step up since the Premier League is of a far higher standard than Ukraine's top division. He has made 156 appearances over five seasons with Shakhtar, the Ukrainian Premier League champions, scoring 14 goals.
