Man United Told They Could Sign Key Midfield Target For €60m

GETTYMan Utd boss Jose Mourinho want to sign Fred

Fred has been in excellent form since joining Shakhtar from Internacional in 2013 and he's been named in the Brazil preliminary squad ahead of this summers World Cup finals.

United have been keen on Fred for months.

The former Internacional star arrived at the Ukrainian giants for €15 million in 2013 and has gone on to make nearly 100 league appearances for the club.

The Ukrainian league season concludes this weekend after which Fred's representatives intend to discuss Shakhtar's conditions for a transfer.

Fred, 25, was City's main midfield target in January and moves were made to strike a deal before Shakhtar chose to hold on to the all-action Brazilian until the end of the Ukrainian season.

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

They add that Fred is most likely to join Manchester United now, seeing out his dream to play in the Premier League, albeit not for the Manchester club most originally expected him to join. "I've been working well here but it has been five years".

"There are other clubs interested in England and France".

'Now I just have to wait to get through the World Cup and see which is the best destination.

'I think I have to change a little. I made it clear that it's my moment.

"The club are reluctant to release [me]". According to a close friend, the player's preference is to move to England, with no approach to date from Paris Saint-Germain.

However, PSG are now said to also be firmly in the race to sign Fred as they look to strengthen their own midfield options this summer.

Should he enjoy an impressive tournament for the Selecao, his departure from Shakhtar will likely become even more likely but also potentially more complicated.
