The summer transfer window is here already.
In Ukraine, Shakhtar Donetsk star player Fred has been consistently in the news recently due to his links with premier league giants Manchester United.
And fortunately for Man United fans, the Brazilian player has confirmed interest from England, admitting his desire to play at a bigger club.
Fred was on the verge of completing a move to Manchester City in January, but the deal couldn’t materialise before the closure of the window. The premier league champions cooled their interest in the South American midfielder and have given Manchester United the space to run for his signature.
The red devils have reportedly held talks with the player’s agent and have offered him a contract (of course, will definitely be more than what he earns in Ukraine)
The midfielder has a £53million release clause in his contract at Shakhtar Donetsk – but Jose Mourinho’s side are looking at persuading the club to reduce the fee.
And Fred, speaking recently to SporTv, admits there had been interests from England, and that he desire playing for a bigger club in Europe.
The Brazilian said although he is very happy at Shakhtar Donetsk, he has told the club management that he desires taking a leap in his career.
