Shakhtar Donestsk have been brilliant in the Champions League this season, and the Ukrainians are likely to qualify for the knockout stage with Manchester City in Group F.
There were reports coming from Brazil that Man United manager Jose Mourinho is ready to sign Fred with a £35 million as a replacement for Marouane Fellaini.
