Man City Had €50m Offer Rejected For Brazil Star

Alex Sandro Man Utd

And today, if I'm not mistaken, there is very strong interest from United.

FC Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred will move to England's Manchester United this summer for 50 million euros, according to online sports site tribuna.com, which refers to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

The Brazil worldwide will form a midfield with Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic at Old Trafford as United begin a summer of heavy investment to try and close a 19-point gap on City. He also started in their Champions League campaign, and helped them beat none other than Manchester City in the group stages. He was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Do you think City need a player like Fred?

The ban being served, Fred will be present in Russian Federation as part of a Brazilian side who will be strong favourites to win the tournament.

A Brazilian global, Fred has courted controversy on a number of occasions, most notably his testing positive for Hydrochlorothiazide during Copa America 2015 and his subsequent ban.

The Ukrainian club's president Rinat Akhmetov confirmed that Fred will be sold for more than Fernandinho and Alex Teixeira who joined Manchester City and Jiangsu Suning for £30m and £45m respectively.

"Versatility, quality, good passing ..."

It looks like Mourinho has his target in mind as the Mirror claim that United are eyeing a £30m bid to sign Valencia defender Joao Cancelo if he doesn't complete a permanent switch to Inter Milan.

The Belgian midfielder signed for Everton in September 2008 from Standard Liege for £15 million, and impressed Toffees supporters and neutrals alike with his combative performances in the middle of the park, and eventually moved further forward in the "number 10" role which brought more goals into his game.

Jose Mourinho will implement Fred alongside Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.

However, no move materialized at that moment as Pep Guardiola & co. ended their interest and are instead working on signing Jorginho from Napoli.
