   Fred is'on standby waiting for a Man Utd medical

Manchester United are closing on their first signing of the summer, with a move for Brazilian midfielder Fred reportedly imminent. "And I am convinced that we will receive and are receiving no less interesting proposals than that from Manchester City". My agents are taking care of it.

Manchester United have reached an agreement to sign Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk this summer, Gianluca Di Marzio has revealed.

United opened talks with Spurs over Alderweireld, the Belgian defender, yesterday, but the transfer of Fred is likely to be more straightforward. Napoli's Jorginho has emerged as a preferable midfield option for Pep Guardiola in the meantime.

The latest reports indicate that Fred is set to become the latest South American ace to ply his trade at Old Trafford.

He will be part of Brazil's squad that will play against Croatia at Anfield and is known for his all-action displays.

"You know that we had negotiations with Manchester City this winter, and there was an official offer - a very big figure", Akhmetov told the club's official website.

Fred has proved that he could be a heartbeat of any team in this world and that is what Jose Mourinho wants him to be at Manchester United in the upcoming season.

"He will cost the potential buyer more than Fernandinho and be even more expensive than Alex Teixeira". This will be a market price, the fair price and it will be beneficial both for the club inviting Fred and for us.

Also a Brazilian midfielder, the player has been on United's radar since January, and was initially chased by Manchester City too.

Signed from worldwide for €15M in 2013 where he was already twice a Campeonato Gaucho champion the classy left-footer has been a regular in the Shakhtar side ever since, helping them to two league titles, two domestic cups and three Super Cups.
