Manchester United have unveiled the signing of midfielder Fred after they managed to sort out his work permit. The Brazil international has now formally been registered as a United player and he becomes the club’s second recruit of the transfer window following the arrival of Diogo Dalot from FC Porto.
Speaking after the move, Fred said:“This is the biggest club in the world and I am delighted to be a part of this amazing team. To work with Jose Mourinho, who has won so many trophies in his time as a coach, is an opportunity not to be missed. I cannot wait to get started and to meet my new team-mates. I would like to thank everyone at Shakhtar Donetsk for everything they have done for me over the past five years. This is a very exciting time for me with my focus now fully on the World Cup with Brazil.”
