'I'm really pleased Fred has completed his transfer to Manchester United.

Rivaldo says Manchester United are getting a "wonderful player" after the club agreed a deal to sign Brazilian midfielder Fred.

United are thought to be happy with paying up to £80m for Milinkovic-Savic but could move for Paris Saint-Germain star Marco Verratti if Lazio don't budge on the price.

"When I signed him at Shakhtar, Taison and Bernard were playing in his position".

United have always been linked to Fred, who is one of the members of Brazil's 23-man squad for the World Cup.

Looking to make vast improvements to his faltering United team, it is thought that Mourinho will be watching the World Cup closely to unearth reinforcements for the 2018/2019 season.

Red Devils supporters will be hoping the Brazil worldwide settles in quickly, though, after he features at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

United have been keen to get their transfer business before the World Cup starts and are close to making Porto right-back Diogo Dalot their second signing.

The Brazilian had been linked with a move to the Red Devils for a while and the defensive midfielder was also in action during Brazil's 2-0 win over Croatia at Anfield.

"He's very happy to come to the Premier League to play, we talked a little bit about that", added Willian, who switched to Chelsea in the summer of 2013.

The 25-year-old made 37 appearances for Shakhtar, as they went on to lift the Ukraine Premier Liga title this past season.
