Jose Mourinho will be pleased to have wrapped up the deal quickly and added the versatile midfielder to his squad well ahead of the start of the 2018/19 campaign.

The Brazilian was a key man in the Shakhtar Donetsk side and won the Ukrainian Premier League title on three occasions for the club.

With United aiming to close the gap with arch-rivals and Premier League champions Manchester City, Jose Mourinho has acted fast by bringing in the talented 25-year-old.

The five-time world champions are training in London at Tottenham's Enfield facility, and played a friendly against Croatia at Anfield on Sunday.

Manchester United have competed the £48m signing of Fred, according to reports.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has predicted that the Super Eagles of Nigeria will qualify in Group D at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. Fred is an all action box to box midfielder, who in theory should significantly improve United's style of play. In 2015, he tested positive for the banned substance hydrochlorothiazide while representing Brazil in the Copa America.

Despite their highest league finish since Alex Ferguson retired, Mourinho was heavily criticised for adopting cautious tactics in several big games as United were often made to look ponderous in comparison to stylish City's commitment to attack.

With Michael Carrick retiring and Marouane Fellaini likely to leave, midfield was one area that needed his attention.

'I don't have anything more to say about my club because now I want to have focus here on the national team and the World Cup'. He rates youngster Scott McTominay, but Fred is an experienced Champions League player and now a Brazilian worldwide.
