The Brazil global - who is likely to play a key role for the Selecao at this summer's World Cup - was reportedly close to signing for Manchester City back in January but it appears the Red Devils have won the race for the 25-year-old's signature. The £50 million price tag, if the deal concludes, may prove a snip come opening day in August.

It would also have been a hard transfer to complete, as Shakhtar were still in the Champions League at the time and would have demanded a hefty price for one of their most prized assets.

"Craig Norwood, official club photographer at Manchester United has started to follow Fred Rodrigues on Instagram", Jonathon captioned the video.

Cape Town - Brazilian star Fred has revealed that Manchester United have put in a strong bid to prise him away from his current club Shakhtar Donetsk.

Fred is expected to cost around £53million, which is his release clause, with Shakhtar president Rinat Akhmetov adamant that the Ukrainian club will extract maximum value for the midfielder. He is a midfield conductor and will fit in well alongside Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba in the middle of the park for United.

Manchester United have been active in the market for a new central midfielder, following the retirement of veteran midfielder Michael Carrick at the end of the season.

The stage is set for Mourinho and Fred next season, now let's see if they will shine. The arrival of Fred is a step in the right direction for Manchester United.

Manchester United's first signing of the summer?

United are also interested in Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic, Di Marzio reports, while considering West Ham attacker Marko Arnautović as an alternative.

Do you think bringing in Fred is the right option for Manchester United?
