A bid for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred has been confirmed by the Brazilian global, and it also appears United are lining up a move for Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld.

Fred is an excellent technical player, coupling his passing range with a high intensity work-rate, great balance, composure, and a delightful dribbling ability even in the face of intense pressing. He is a midfield conductor and will fit in well alongside Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba in the middle of the park for United.
