​Man Utd hasten negotiations for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred

Manchester United are closing in on the Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred.

United believe the Brazilian central midfielder is the ideal player to get into the line-up alongside Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba.

Fred would effectively replace Michael Carrick in the United squad.

The Manchester Evening News believes that United are the firm favourites to land Fred. They hope to conclude a move next month, as they want to resolve the majority of their transfer business early.

Fred is a member of the Brazilian national team. United may want to get a deal done before the World Cup, in case his stock rises.

The player has a €60 million release clause in his contract, which United should be able to match.
