Jose Mourinho receives huge boost after Fred decision

Jose Mourinho receives huge boost after Fred decision”

United have been battling with rivals City to land the 25-year-old since before the January transfer window, but the latest reports suggest that Mourinho has come out on top in a bid to land the Brazilian.

Manchester United are reportedly closing in on £40million Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred as Jose Mourinho's first summer signing.

'I made it clear to the club that I was very happy here but I want to make a bigger leap in my career.

Just last week, Shakhtar captain Dario Srna revealed during the club's title celebration that Fred would be leaving for Manchester at the end of the season. "I've been working well here but it has been five years".

'I think I have to change a little. "And of course, some of the players I am totally convinced are going to make it, some others I have good hopes that they are going to make it, and some others I don't believe they are going to make it".

'The club are reluctant to release [me].

With Manchester City's withdrawal, it's Manchester United who would now have a clearer path to sign the Shakhtar player. "As soon as I come back from the World Cup we will sit down, talk and look at the options". While City have also prioritised midfield reinforcement as they prepare to defend a Premier League title won with a record 100 points and retain an interest in Fred, the English champions regard Napoli's Italy worldwide Jorginho as an alternative option.

Fred already has two of the biggest clubs in the world pursuing him, and Shakhtar will be eager to make as much money from their prize asset as possible, especially given he is contracted to the club to 2023.

While a potential move to join compatriots Neymar and Marquinhos at Paris Saint-Germain has been touted as well.
