Man Utd, Man City target Fred: I want to make a bigger leap

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred has announced he plans to leave this summer.

The Brazil international is a major target for Manchester United and Manchester City.

Speaking to the 25-year-old Fred outlined a desire to progress.

"I made it clear to the club that I was very happy here but I want to make a bigger leap in my career.

"There are other clubs interested in England and France. I want to make a bigger leap, I made it clear to the club.

"Now I just have to wait to get through the World Cup and see which is the best destination.

"I think I have to change a little. I have dreams of playing in major clubs in Europe. I made it clear that it's my moment.

"The club are reluctant to release [me]. I have a contract until 2021. As soon as I come back from the World Cup we will sit down, talk and look at the options."
