Manchester City Ready To Pull Plug On Fred Move As Interest Cools

Manchester City Ready To Pull Plug On Fred Move As Interest Cools”

Fred scored a stunning free kick against Roma in the Champions League Manchester United and Manchester City have crossed each other's path are they are set to sign Brazilian midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer. With Yaya Toure leaving in the summer, and Fernandinho now 32 years of age, Pep Guardiola is in dire need of the 25-year-old to fill the vacuum.

Manchester City have cooled their interest in recent midfield target Fred according to reports today by The Times, Goal and Daily Mail. Manchester United have also kept tabs on Fred this season. He is ready for the best championships. "If he asked us to stay another year, we'd let him".

Shakhtar Donetsk chief executive Sergei Palkin has confirmed that Manchester City or Manchester United will sign Fred during the summer transfer window.

Fred has been with Ukrainian giants Shakhtar since 2013 and displayed a remarkable level of consistency over the course of five seasons.

Shakhtar are now leading the Ukrainian first division and take on Roma tonight in the Champions league, leading 2-1 on aggregate.

However, the Shakhtar star made it very clear that he wasn't obsessed with the idea of playing for Pep Guardiola, revealing he would be "happy" to play for the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal if they came along. It is the best league in the world, I have no doubt, and I believe that my football would evolve.

"There was a process now in the winter window, and they even made a proposal for Shakhtar, but it didn't happen because of the Champions League, since I could not play for another team".

Guardiola did not talk to me, but there were people from City who talked to my agent. Unfortunately it did not work out, but now I'm focused here, out of the window we try to forget and focus on football.
