Manchester United Fans React As Fred Joins Red Devils

Lee Sharpe

British media reported that United will pay Shakhtar about £52 million for the 25-year-old, who is in Brazil's squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Former Brazil global Rivaldo believes current national star midfielder Fred will shine for new club Manchester United, although he warned the player will need time to settle.

On Tuesday, it was confirmed Fred will be back in the north-west of England next season and has joined Manchester United in a £52million deal.

"Mourinho is a serial victor and he may have got away with this style of football at his previous clubs because they were happy so long as they won a few trophies, but you won't get away with this at United", Ince told Yahoo!

Alternatively, Mourinho could choose to use Fred in a more conservative role alongside Matic in a two-man defensive midfield screen.

Former Brazil star Rivaldo has labelled Fred a wonderful player as the midfielder closes in on a move to Manchester United.

"He is a wonderful player", the 46-year-old told Sky Sports News.

Fred underwent a medical at Carrington on Monday and is expected to sign a four-year deal at Old Trafford to become Jose Mourinho's first signing of the summer.

"Fred is a really good player", says Dmitry Nedaivozov, who heads Shakhtar's London Supporters' club, "though I'm not sure he is good enough to be a Man U player".

During Shakhtar's Champions League campaign, Fred ranked top in their squad for passes completed (443), tackles won (18) and dribbles completed (23). The retirement of Michael Carrick has left a huge hole to fill in that department. "You can go back to Steve Coppell, through to Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and plenty more and they all played football with a bit of daring in them", begins Ince.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho doesn't think Egypt will make it past the group stages, tipping Uruguay and Russian Federation to progress to the second round.

Brazil have already been victorious at Luzhniki Stadium - the home of the Russian national team and also the venue for the World Cup 2018 opener and final - dismantling the hosts 3-0 during a second half rout. "Then Shakhtar Donetsk did not allow him to play in the 2016 Olympics in Rio".
