Manchester United Football Club are finally set to announce that Fred is a Red Devil.
That’s according to Sky Sports News’ sources, who say the midfielder will be officially unveiled tomorrow.
It was two weeks ago when United had confirmed that an agreement was in place to sign the Brazil international, but for whatever reason, the club weren’t in a position to announce the signing.
Now, though, all the minor issues that were stopping the move from being finalised have seemingly been ironed out, with the 25-year-old set to be officially welcomed to the club shortly.

It’s great to see that, even in a World Cup year, United are going about their business as quickly and professionally as possible. Completing two major signings in that two-week period before the international tournament got underway could be crucial – particularly if you’re targeting players who are planning on being in Russia for the duration.
There is no doubt that Fred will be a brilliant signing for us. During his spell in Ukraine, the midfielder has progressed year-on-year. Although the Premier League is certainly a step up, I fully expect that trend to continue. Hopefully, he’s the final piece of Jose Mourinho’s midfield jigsaw, and now we may finally see the best of Paul Pogba, too…
