United signs Brazil worldwide Fred

With Jose Mourinho's Manchester United having confirmed the signing of Brazil worldwide Fred for a fee of more than £50 million on Tuesday, here are the 10 most expensive signings in the Red Devils' history.

Brazilian midfielder Fred, 25, who is expected to sign for Manchester United on Wednesday, was the surprise choice in Tite's World Cup squad for Russian Federation.

"He is a wonderful player", the 46-year-old told Sky Sports News.

The midfielder Fred returns to the Seleção on Tuesday as a Manchester United player.

Fred joined Shakhtar from Brazilian side Internacional in 2013.

United need to bolster their squad if they are to renew their challenge against cross-city rivals Manchester City, who they trailed by 19 points in last season's Premier League.

"The World Cup is important, for us to deliver a good performance, for the team to do well and for things to go as well as possible".

But the report taps into continuing anxiety about the information users give up - and to whom - when they use Facebook . The company claims that these private APIs were "tightly controlled" in a statement posted on the Facebook newsroom.

He has been capped eight times by Brazil after making his global debut in 2014 and is part of the squad for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

Fred - whose arrival comes after Michael Carrick's retirement and amid uncertainty surrounding Marouane Fellaini's future - will become United's first summer signing.

Fred caught the eye in Shakhtar's run to the last-16 of the Champions League, where the Ukrainians only lost out on away goals to Roma.

"That means that I am ready for the World Cup".

Fred is renowned for his all-action style of play and is just as good at tracking back and defending as he is pushing forward and creating chances.

"I think the little fellow will finish first", Mourinho said as he picked Argentina to finish ahead of Nigeria in Group D, meaning Croatia and Iceland both get knocked out in his prediction. The tournament starts next Thursday, 14 June, with Russian Federation facing Saudi Arabia in the opening tie.
