Manchester United: Brazilian Fred joins from Shakhtar Donetsk for £47m

Brazil midfielder Fred has completed his £47m move to Manchester United from Shakhtar Donetsk.

The 25-year-old, who is currently at the World Cup in Russia, joins on a five-year-deal.

He becomes manager Jose Mourinho’s second signing this summer following Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot’s arrival at Old Trafford.

“This is the biggest club in the world and I am delighted to be a part of this amazing team,” said Fred.

“To work with Jose Mourinho, who has won so many trophies in his time as a coach, is an opportunity not to be missed.”

Fred scored 15 goals in 155 appearances for Ukrainian side Shakhtar after joining from Internacional in 2013.

During that time, he helped Shakhtar win three league titles, three Ukrainian Cups and four Ukrainian Super Cups.
