Manchester United have today confirmed the signing of Brazil global Fred on a four-year contract, after the completion of a medical.

The Brazilian is set to replace Michael Carrick who retired to join the United backroom staff at the end of last season.

Fred will hope to make the same impact on the Premier League as Brazilian worldwide team-mates Willian and Fernandinho, who also arrived in England via spells with Shakhtar.

United confirmed on Tuesday that an agreement had been struck with Shakhtar Donetsk ahead of a transfer that is likely to cost an initial £47million.

Sky Sports report he has a £20 million release clause in his contract, which the Old Trafford club would easily be able to meet.

"Official club announcement in due course".

He also backed his compatriot to improve Jose Mourinho's current Red Devils side. He has a lot of qualities.

"Diogo Dalot to Manchester United is done", he tweeted. I am happy for him.

United might not yet be finished with transfer activity prior to the June 14 kickoff of the World Cup. Pep Guardiola was very impressed when Fred played against Manchester City for Shakhtar in the Champions League in 2017-18.

"He's excited to start but now it's time to think about the World Cup and think about the national team".

A 2013 arrival from Brazil's Internacional, Fred helped Ukrainian giants Shakhtar to three league titles, while amassing 155 appearances and 15 goals.
