  • Man Utd transfer news Chelsea star Willian has been linked with a summer switch

The Brazil global has agreed a five-year contract and will join up with his new team-mates after the World Cup.

Brazilian midfielder Fred will need time to adapt to the demands of English football but has all the attributes to succeed at Manchester United, former World Player of the Year Rivaldo has said.

Fred, who has mainly been used as a substitute by Brazil, is precisely the sort of all-round central midfielder Mourinho feels his side have lacked.

Fred started his youth career at Atletico Mineiro in Brazil, before leaving in 2009 to play for Porto Alegre. He came through the youth ranks to establish himself as an important first-team player for the club.

During his time at the Ukrainian club, Fred has won a host of titles including three Ukrainian Premier League Championships, three Ukrainian Cups and four Ukrainian Super Cups.

What are his key strengths?

Belgium worldwide Fellaini is out of contract at the end of the month as is believed to be a target for a rival top-six Premier League club. In eight European games, he attempted 26 dribbles, completing 23 (88 per cent) of them. Earlier in the year, Manchester City made a bid for the player.

"Official club announcement in due course".

For Cleveland to have a fighting chance in Games 3 and 4, they must go back to what has worked for them, playing Kyle Korver. He also became the sixth player to ever make 300 3s in the postseason, joining Curry as the Warriors to reach the feat.

"What they have got with Mourinho is very different".

"Mourinho is signing attacking, exciting players, but he has to use them properly".

Paul Pogba has been linked with a return to Juventus this summer.

In terms of where he would play, Mourinho switched from his traditional 4-2-3-1 formation to a 4-3-3, which did see United improve their style of play marginally. "He's a versatile midfielder, can play any position in the centre of the park, but his best role is as a box-to-box midfielder, because of his capacity to defend, create and finish".

Should United pursue a move for Lazio's enormous playmaker Sergej Milinkovic-Savic too, however, then real question marks about Pogba's future could be raised. Let us know in the comments section below.

"I hope he does well at Manchester United". Fred's career has been pretty successful thus far.

Fred was handed a two-year ban between July 2015 and July 2017 after he tested positive for the diuretic hydrochlorothiazide during Copa America.
