Man Utd agree £43.8 million transfer fee

Alderweireld could cost more than £50 million

The claim follows reports that United had previously made enquiries about the Brazil worldwide while City were said to have an offer rejected by his Ukrainian club during the January transfer window.

United lost to Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley last weekend and finished second in the Premier League behind Manchester City.

Fred made 37 appearances for Shakhtar in all competitions this past season, scoring four goals and providing seven assists from the centre of midfield.

Manchester United manger, Jose Mourinho is willing to sell midfielder, Paul Pogba to Barcelona, if he gets the services of playmaker, Ivan Rakitic in return.

And while United are now the club leading the charge for the Brazil worldwide, Shakhtar president Rinat Akhmetov insists that he is expecting offers this summer to be no lower than the one which City submitted in January.

Manchester United have opened new contract talks with Anthony Martial.

Klopp explains why he picked Liverpool ahead of other clubs
We had one player who maybe he could make a difference on his own, and here they have three. 'And that's what I am good in. We had players who worked very hard, we had a good balance.

Manchester City and Manchester United, both the clubs are highly interested in the signing of the midfielder.

The 25-year-old, who has been called up to Brazil squad for the 2018 World Cup, was the subject of interest from Man City a few months ago.

"He will cost the potential buyer more than Fernandinho and be even more expensive than Alex Teixeira".

While many media outlets have said United are trying to get a deal done before the World Cup, well respected journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed that a deal has now been agreed.

United are yet to make any official announcement regarding the player's arrival but the move could be formally sorted out next week when Fred is due to make his trip to England. They need to reinforce their squad this summer to close the gap on champions Manchester City, who cantered to a league title with a 19-point lead by the end of the campaign.

Despite Jose Mourinho praising Fellaini earlier in the season for his "strong character", he has never been a regular starter in the league under him and it's no surprise to read that he is speaking to other clubs before his contract officially expires at the Red Devils.
