According to new reports, the Old Trafford club have been told they can secure his signature if they pay the £53million release clause in his contract.

Manager Jose Mourinho is keen on signing the South American star to replace Michael Carrick who hung his boots about three days ago.

Fred was heavily linked with a move to Manchester City in January, but his side chose to keep him at Ukraine – which made the premier league champions cooled their interests in him.

Mourinho’s side have reportedly held talks with the player’s reps and are said to have put a contract on the table for him.

It is reported that Mourinho had told former AC Milan manager Fabio Capello of his interest in the player and that seems to have excited him.

In his reaction, he noted that it is a privilege for him to have a manager like the Portuguese boss monitor him.

He therefore affirmed that he currently has a contract with the Italian side and he will be happy to remain because of his love for the city and his wish to live close to his family.

However, Mourinho who had missed out on a number of defensive targets in the summer window is looking forward to having a busy winter dealings as he hopes to strengthen his defence.

United have struggled under the reigns of the Portuguese manager with three defeats in the Premier league but the situation seems to be turning around after seeing two comebacks against Newcastle and another against Chelsea.

Although the game against the West London club ended in a 2-2 draw after the Mourinho side rose up from a 1-0 defeat to upturn the situation at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Manchester United will host a big visitor at the Old Trafford when they welcome Juventus to the Theatre of Dreams for the Champions League clash in the week.

Former player and Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo will no doubt be involved in the clash as he will be returning to the Old Trafford for the second time after leaving for Real Madrid in 2009 on Tuesday night.

The first happened in 2013 where Spanish giants Marid had played United in a two-legged round of 16 but this visit will be the first time the Portuguese star will be returning in a Juventus shirt.

There were earlier fears that Ronaldo will not be having a return to his former side after he was shown a red card in the first Champions League game as a Juventus player but he was only meant to miss a game which he has already served.

Juventus winger Fernando Bernardeschi has, therefore, revealed the mood of the world best player ahead of the encounter.

According to him, Ronaldo is just as calm as he has always been, adding that he is focused with a champion mentality on the pitch.

Meanwhile, manager Jose Mourinho has admitted the possibility of the Juventus player scoring at the Old Trafford knowing that Ronaldo is a competitive player who is not moved by emotions on the field of play.

The Sunday training at the London Colney saw two other Nigerian youth players, goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo and left-back Tolaji Bola involved in the workout.

Although it is almost certain that the two youngsters will not make the 18 man list for the game against the Foxes as they are not anywhere close to joining the senior team, Iwobi who has been in great form this season is expected to line up in the starting XI.

Iwobi has everything but just this – Koscielny

The North London side are currently in good form as they have won every single game in the Premier League after their 2 first defeats at the start of the season.

Iwobi is growing big into the Unai Emery team having provided a number of assists this season in all competitions. No doubt he will no longer be snubbed by the manager.

The Arsenal academy graduate will likely face his fellow countrymen, Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi who are expected to be listed in the 18-man squad of the visiting team.

Iwobi, Iheanacho and Ndidi were all involved in the Super Eagles doubleheader games against Libya for the 2019 Africa Nations Cup qualifiers

Puel praised manager Unai Emery for doing a good job, noting that he has been able to pick up from the Arsene Wenger era to create a level of stability in the Arsenal team which was never expected.

He praised Emery for living with the pressure at the beginning of the season and has been able to move far away, adding that he has got a lot of respect for him.

However, Arsenal hope to extend their winning streak to 10 so as to further press in the race for the EPL title.

It has been all good for the Gunners who started slow with two consecutive defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea but they have since bounced back, winning every single game to the last that was played against Fulham.

A pause was experienced as a result of the international break and with a return; Arsenal will face the former Premier League winners with top striker Jamie Vardy looking like a threat.

So many things have been said about the England international and they must not be taken for granted by the Spanish manager’s defence knowing his goal ration which has been consistent since he helped his side win the league.

Vardy has been identified as one of the few strikers in the league including Sergio Aguero, Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah who have been consistent and are difficult to silence.
