Man Utd transfer news David De Gea has insisted he is happy at Old Trafford

"A further announcement will be made in due course".

Neymar and several other members of Brazil's squad were seen congratulating Fred on the move at Tottenham's training ground as Tite's men prepared for their World Cup warm-up match with Austria.

Last week, Arnautovic admitted he was flattered to be linked with the Premier League giants.

Jose Mourinho has reportedly made personal contact with the agent of West Ham United attacker Marko Arnautovic.

And beating City to the signature of Fred, who was a target for the English champions in January, could prove to be a significant first step.

Fred continued to bag silverwares after leaving Brazil to join Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk.

With Michael Carrick retiring and Marouane Fellaini likely to leave, midfield was one area that needed his attention.

Jose Mourinho will be pleased to have wrapped up the deal quickly and added the versatile midfielder to his squad well ahead of the start of the 2018/19 campaign.

Fred was born in Belo Horizonte and moved to Europe in 2013 from Brazilian club Internacional.

Fred made his worldwide debut for Brazil in 2014 under Dunga and was called up for the 2015 Copa America following an injury to defensive midfielder Luiz Gustavo.

Fred was handed a two-year ban between July 2015 and July 2017 after he tested positive for the diuretic hydrochlorothiazide during Copa America. However, FIFA extended the punishment to a worldwide ban in 2016 which ruled him out for four months.

Making his 2018 World Cup predictions for RT, Mourinho tipped Brazil and Switzerland to better Serbia's position in the group, meaning Matic would be able to finally take some time off football before July comes around.

"Players are always thinking of their careers".

"If I was a club manager, I would be looking to sign him".
