Manchester United have agreed a deal with Shakhtar Donetsk to sign Brazil midfielder Fred.

Fred, 25, completed a medical on Monday  and is now set to become Jose Mourinho’s first signing of the summer as the club looks to challenge for honours next season.

“Manchester United is delighted to announce it has reached an agreement with Shakhtar Donetsk for the transfer of Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos (Fred),” the club said in a statement on their website.
