Done Deal: Fred all but confirms he will join Manchester United during the summer transfer window


Manchester United target Fred has all but confirmed that he will play for the Red Devils next season.

Linking to a Manchester Evening News story regarding Fred's imminent transfer, a friend tweeted: "Good, deserving."

To which the Brazilian replied: "Thank you, Nany."

If the transfer goes through, the 25-year-old will be Jose Mourinho's first summer signing.

Meanwhile, Brazilian football expert Tim Vickery says he expected the player to join the other side of Manchester.

"I enjoyed watching him on the way up at Internacional," he told Sky Sports News.

"He's a busy little left-footed midfielder. Very dynamic, and he's got some quality. He's developing as well.

"I could understand City's interest. When they played Shakhtar in the Champions League, Pep Guardiola was very impressed with him.

"You could see Fred fitting into a dynamic Man City midfield. He's almost like a smaller left-footed version of Fernandinho.

"To my surprise, it seems City have dropped aside and United have come in there.

"I know that Fred is very excited about the prospect of playing for a top club in the Premier League."
