Manchester United are closing in on a deal with Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred.

The Spain newspaper claims that Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has identified Dembele as his first signing target this summer and thus, has been handed a major boost by Barcelona in his attempt to get the Gunners back to the Champions League. And Belgian global Marouane Fellaini is also understood to be on the way out when his contract expires in just over a month, with AC Milan mooted to be a potential destination for the former Everton midfielder.

Man United have had a tough season despite finishing runners-up in the league.

With Michael Carrick retiring and Marouane Fellaini leaving, the arrival of Fred signals the start of a new era for United.

United opened talks with Spurs over Alderweireld, the Belgian defender, yesterday, but the transfer of Fred is likely to be more straightforward.

We round-up the latest Manchester United transfer rumours on Saturday, May 26. However, no move materialized at that moment as Pep Guardiola & co. ended their interest and are instead working on signing Jorginho from Napoli.

Infected people initially develop influenza-like symptoms of fever, headaches, myalgia (muscle pain), vomiting and sore throat. Her body was cremated soon after her death over fears the virus could spread; her family wasn't able to see her.

Fred was one of Shakhtar's best players in the 2017-18 season as they picked up another Ukrainian league title.

Along with Daley Blind and Luke Shaw, Darmian has little future at the club as Mourinho, who signed a new contract in January that will keep him at Old Trafford until at least 2020, seeks reinforcements.

Manchester United lack "Brazilian flavor" in their team and Fred would definitely bring that alongside his determined and gritty nature to win matches on the pitch.

The Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder is part of Tite's Brazil squad for the tournament in Russian Federation next month, though first the Selecao will take on Croatia at Anfield on June 3.

The stage is set for Mourinho and Fred next season, now let's see if they will shine.

City subsequently identified Fred as the ideal challenger to Fernandinho, who at the age of 33 may not have many years at the top of the game left in him.
