  • Man Utd transfer news David De Gea has insisted he is happy at Old Trafford

Fred, 25, was announced as United's first signing of the summer earlier this week in deal which is understood to have cost Jose Mourinho's side around £52million.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has predicted that the Super Eagles of Nigeria will qualify in Group D at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

United need to bolster their squad if they are to renew their challenge against cross-city rivals Manchester City, who they trailed by 19 points in last season's Premier League.

Fred caught the eye in Shakhtar's run to the last-16 of the Champions League, where the Ukrainians only lost out on away goals to Roma.

Roberto Firmino has claimed Brazil team-mate Fred is now his "rival" following the midfielder's move to Manchester United.

United boss Jose Mourinho is looking to strengthen his midfield following the retirement of Michael Carrick and the uncertainty over the future of Marouane Fellaini at Old Trafford.




Willian knows Fred well from their time spent on global duty with Brazil, and the Chelsea FC star has opened up about the pair's conversation about the move to Old Trafford.

United released the following statement on agreeing a deal for Fred.

Mourinho's task will now be to harness Fred's passing ability, while also finally getting the best out of Pogba in his third season since an £89 million move from Juventus.

As they prepare for the World Cup in order to look sharp on the pitch, the Brazil players are also aiming to look sharp off it too. However, FIFA extended the punishment to a worldwide ban in 2016 which ruled him out for four months.

"Players are always thinking of their careers".

HD Cutz, normally based in Battersea, London, sent a barber up to the Brazilians' hotel in Liverpool and the firm posted several clips and pictures of the players after their haircuts.
