  • What position does Fred play and how will he affect Paul Pogba at Man Utd

With United aiming to close the gap with arch-rivals and Premier League champions Manchester City, Jose Mourinho has acted fast by bringing in the talented 25-year-old.

It appears Jose Mourinho has got his man and Fred will be a ideal player alongside Nemanja Matic in the heart of United's midfield but where this leaves the likes of Paul Pogba, Ander Herrera and others remains to be seen.

Which team are you supporting in the 2018 World Cup?

Manchester United's imminent new signing Fred is joining "one of the best teams in the world", according to Brazil teammate Willian.

Commenting further, Mourinho admitted to being torn over who he wants to progress deep into the tournament - due to wanting his Red Devils stars to have a rest before the new season.

I could be wrong, but I think these two games are going to be emotionally draining for the Cavs - and especially, LeBron James . That rang true again on Sunday when Green finished with six points, two rebounds, and one assists on 28.5 percent shooting.

I hope he does well at Manchester United.

The announcement of Fred was perhaps expediated by the fact that Brazil coach Tite had said he wanted his players domestic futures to be decided before the World Cup this summer. "Maybe Jose Mourinho has seen something in Fred which he thinks can improve his side".

United is in need of midfield reinforcements with Michael Carrick retiring and Marouane Fellaini out of contract. In 2015, he tested positive for the banned substance hydrochlorothiazide while representing Brazil in the Copa America.

Juan Mata cost United £40.26 million (R690.86 million) in 2013, while midfielder Nemanja Matic cost the club £40.23 million (R690.34 million) a year ago.

Fred is renowned for his all-action style of play and is just as good at tracking back and defending as he is pushing forward and creating chances.
