Premier League giants Manchester United have reportedly agreed a €50 million (R729 million) deal for a Brazil international.

Reports: 5 Stars Man Utd Need To Challenge Man City Next Season

According to Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, the Red Devils have reached an agreement with Shakhtar Donetsk for Brazilian midfielder Fred.

The 25-year-old will be expected to be a starter in Jose Mourinho's side next season should the transfer materialise, and is likely to partner Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba in a three-man midfield.

However, speaking at a press conference while with the Brazil national team, Fred has claimed he will only address his playing future after the World Cup.

"There have been some advanced talks since January when I almost went to Man City," he said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"United talked to my staff and Shakhtar. However, besides this strong news, my head is entirely with the World Cup.

"Gilberto Silva (his agent) is a guy in which I trust, he deals with all off-pitch stuff. My family is always well informed, too.

"I do not know what I am going to choose; maybe I will decide better after the World Cup."

The central midfielder has made 155 appearances for Shakhtar since joining the club in 2013, scoring 15 goals and assisting a further 15 strikes.
