Fred confirms Manchester City interest, but has eyes for Manchester United

  • City scouts were sent to watch Borussia Dortmund's midfielder Julian Weigl recently

"Fred will leave in July", Palkin confirmed, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred was heavily linked with Manchester City in the January transfer window, but a deal never materialised, despite reports that there was an offer on the table.

The Brazilian has impressed so far this season, with his form both in the Ukrainian league and the Champions League drawing praise.

That result means that the title could be clinched against rivals Manchester United when they face off at the Etihad Stadium on April 7th.

Fred who primarily plays as a defensive midfielder for Shakhtar is seen as a replacement for the ageing Fernandinho or similarly could be an understudy for the 29-year-old Nemanja Matic at United.

Carlos Hyde To Sign With Cleveland Browns
Hyde did well running Shanahan's outside zone, but he wasn't a seamless fit the team might be looking for going forward. The Browns have the first and fourth picks in the draft, and are expected to take a quarterback with one of the picks.

United were said to be considering a move for the 25-year-old in January before they signed Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.

30% off Manchester City away kits! Mourinho has identified centre midfield as a position he wants to strengthen in the summer and Fred would be a great addition to Mourinho's squad.

Fred is a highly energetic midfielder with a great passing range. He is also a great dribbler and often uses this to get himself out of tricky situations in the centre of the pitch.

"There was a process in the winter window, and they even made a proposal for Shakhtar, but it didn't happen because of the Champions League, since I could not play for another team".

A delegation from Shakhtar has been over to the City Football Academy at least once since December. Fred had scored a stunning free kick in the first leg and he looked like Shakhtar's best player in the tie. "It is the best league in the world, I have no doubt, and I believe that my football would evolve", he added.
