Reported Man United target Fred reveals when he will make transfer decision

Alex Sandro Man Utd

For most of the season, Jose Mourinho has encouraged his team to play a form of counter-attacking football that is catalysed from a deep-lying block, usually in a 6-3-1 formation.

The former Internacional player added: "I am focused exclusively on the World Cup".

There have been reports that Shakhtar could hold on until Fred's alleged release clause of €60m is met, but Akhmetov admits that the club cannot insist on a particular fee if the market does not allow it. "Soon after, City and United talked to Shakhtar and my agents", Fred said, via Globo Esporte.

The 25 year old from Belo Horizonte made the move to Ukraine quickly. Although the Citizens dropped their interest and are now more keen on Jorginho, there is reason to think that Fred could inspire United to a title, given that he plays such a pivotal role for Brazil.

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

"United talked to my staff and Shakhtar".

It looks as though Fred will be the next Brazilian off the production line following a successful five-year spell.

In any event, Milinkovic-Savic's similarity to Pogba in terms of the space they like to operate arguably makes Fred a better fit for the starting eleven, and at half the asking price.

What are his key strengths?

He completed a move to Shakhtar Donetsk in June 2013.

It is Fred's dribbling stats that stand out.

Manchester City dropped out of the race for his signature last month, leaving Manchester United on pole position to sign him.

It is that drive from central areas that sets him apart from Mourinho's other central midfield options.

The flirtation of Manchester United to lure Cristiano Ronaldo back to Old Trafford never seem to stop.
