Manchester United Leading Race To Sign Brazilian

Jose Mourinho's Manchester United are said to be leading the race to sign a highly-rated Brazilian star, whom Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was also reportedly interested in.

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred is hot property at the moment, and according to Manchester Evening News, United are the frontrunners in the race for his signature.

It was believed that Guardiola was also considering a move for the 25-year-old, but it has now been claimed that the Citizens have retracted their interest in the player.

This potentially means United could have a free run at attempting to lure the midfielder away from Shakhtar, the club he joined from Brazilian side Internacional in 2013.

Fred, who made his debut for his national side in 2014, has shown great promise in Ukraine, and has impressed not only domestically but also in the UEFA Champions League.

He is known for his ability to break down play in midfield, and is also a gifted passer of the ball.
