  • Man United to battle PSG for signature of 25-year-old Brazilian

Manchester City have ended their interest in signing Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred with Pep Guardiola instead choosing to move for Napoli's Jorginho, Brazilian outlet UOL Esporte reports.

Shakhtar chief executive Sergei Palkin confirmed earlier this year that Fred, linked with Manchester City as well, would join one of the Manchester clubs at the end of the 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.

Shakhtar - who have specialised in taking and developing elite talents from Brazilian football before selling them on to Europe's most moneyed clubs - signed Fred from Internacional in 2013 for a transfer fee of €15m. I worked with the players for a couple of years. I want to make a bigger leap, I made it clear to the club.

Not only is Fred the type of midfielder Manchester United do not possess at the moment, but he is also Brazilian, which makes him all the more valuable for Mourinho, who previously admitted that he would love to add a Brazil worldwide to his squad. I have dreams of playing in major clubs in Europe. "As soon as I come back from the World Cup we will sit down, talk and look at the options".

Manchester City are also keen on the 25-year-old.

Mourinho is actively looking to strengthen his central midfield area, with Michael Carrick retiring and continued doubts over whether Marouane Fellaini will stay at the club or leave on a free this summer.

Fred has a £53million release clause in his contract but United are hesistant to pay that much and will attempt to talk Shakhtar down. The Old Trafford boss is in the market for as many as four new defenders and would prefer to move on a number of high-salaried fringe players, including Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian and Luke Shaw.
