Manchester United are reportedly finalising negotiations that will see Fred complete his transfer to Old Trafford from Shakhtar Donetsk.
The Brazilian international is in England with his nation as they prepare to face off in their pre-World Cup friendlies.
It’s said that United have negotiated a deal worth less than the player’s release clause but there are add-ons that will come close to the £52m number.
Jose Mourinho previously signed Romelu Lukaku while the Belgian was in the USA and so Fred doesn’t have to be in Manchester to complete the deal.
The report claims that the transfer and medical can be struck in the club’s offices in London where the Brazilian national side are currently located.
According to Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are putting the finishing touches to the Fred transfer with Jose not expecting any complications in the final stages of negotiations.
All that’s being said to be left is a medical and personal terms which could see an official announcement come within the next few days.
Fred’s agent also flew in to the UK earlier in the week to try to conclude the deal as Manchester United are hoping to wrap it all up before the World Cup begins.
