Manchester United, City Target Fred Says He Wants Move from Shakhtar Donetsk

Manchester United, City Target Fred Says He Wants Move from Shakhtar Donetsk

The Brazilian moved to Donetsk from Internacional in 2013.

With the summer transfer window looming Fred has now revealed he's explained his decision on his future to Shakhtar. "I've been working well here but it has been five years".

'There are other clubs interested in England and France.

They add that Fred is most likely to join Manchester United now, seeing out his dream to play in the Premier League, albeit not for the Manchester club most originally expected him to join.

'Now I just have to wait to get through the World Cup and see which is the best destination. I made it clear that it's my moment.

Mission Impossible: Fallout also stars Rebecca Ferguson , Ving Rhames , Simon Pegg , Angela Bassett , and Alec Baldwin . This film is directed by Christopher McQuarrie , who also directed the first two films of the franchise.

'The club are reluctant to release [me]. "As soon as I come back from the World Cup we will sit down, talk and look at the options".

Mourinho is actively looking to strengthen his central midfield area, with Michael Carrick retiring and continued doubts over whether Marouane Fellaini will stay at the club or leave on a free this summer. While City have also prioritised midfield reinforcement as they prepare to defend a Premier League title won with a record 100 points and retain an interest in Fred, the English champions regard Napoli's Italy global Jorginho as an alternative option.

With Manchester City's withdrawal, it's Manchester United who would now have a clearer path to sign the Shakhtar player.

With Thiago Motta being 35 years old and Lassana Diarra 33, Paris Saint-Germain intend to sign a new dynamic defensive midfielder to partner Adrien Rabiot, which had led the Ligue 1 giants to identify Fred as a crucial summer target.

Fred has a £53million release clause in his contract but United are hesistant to pay that much and will attempt to talk Shakhtar down.
