Mourrinho had hinted he needed a Brazilian in his squad in a press conference last season and it now looks like the midfielder will complete his move to Old Trafford in coming days after both clubs reached an agreement around £52.5m. Mourinho has identified Fred as the defensive midfielder he feels United are missing, and it is understood the two clubs are close to striking a deal worth £43m plus add-ons. The 25-year-old Brazilian has made no secret of his desire to move to the Premier League, and Shakhtar have already lined up a replacement by agreeing to sign Maycon from Corinthians for £5m.
