Brazilian international attacking midfielder, Fred has finally completed his switch which is in the region of £50m to Manchester United.
The Red Devils have made an official confirmation that the 25-year-old has put pen to paper on a five-year deal.
And that is in the wake of the very skillfull star and master dribbler having successfully undergone a medical.
“This is the biggest club in the world and I have delight 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 I cannot miss.” Fred disclosed to the club’s website.
“I cannot wait to start playing for United and to meet my new team-mates.
“Furthermore, I want to thank everyone at Shakhtar for everything they have done for me over the past five years.” The South American summed up.
United hopeful of sorting out Fred work permit issues
Manchester United are reportedly hopeful of sorting out the work permit issues of midfielder, Fred within the next one week.
This will then afford the Premier League giants the opportunity to officially announce the signing of the Shakhtar Donetsk player.
On the other hand, United have gone ahead to officially confirm reaching a deal with Shakhtar for Fred this summer.
The Red Devils made a formal announcement last week they had reached a deal of £50m with Shakhtar to sign Fred.
Earlier reports had dropped a hint the Red Devils wanted to pay in the region of £50m for the Brazilian.
Despite that, though, the Premier League giants are yet to officially reveal the full details of the transfer in public.
“Manchester United has great delight to announce it has reached an agreement with Shakhtar Donetsk.
“And that is for the transfer of Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos,” a statement read on the official United website.
“A further announcement will be out in due course,” the statement summed up.
Despite that, Fred has, however, not yet gone through a formal registration with the Football Association as a United player.
Some reports from the British media suggest the South American ace will pen a four-year deal with the Red Devils.
He found the net four times while making seven assists in 37 overall matches for Shakhtar during the 2017/18 season.
