Frederico Rodrigues Santos

Latest reports say Manchester City are set to make a bid for Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred.

The left-footed Brazilian operates mainly from the centre of the pitch either as a central midfield player or as a number 10.

The 24-year old has also attracted interest from Manchester United, who have been reported to be considering a bid for the player.

These new reports now say Premier League leaders Manchester City are set to do just that after manager Pep Guardiola identified him as a potential replacement for compatriot Fernandinho.

News of a £45 million bid made to the Ukrainian club from City have also surfaced. This particular report says the bid fell short of Shaktar’s valuation of their star midfield player. However, City are said to be keen on returning with a higher bid.

This is set to present a bidding war for the talented Brazilian as although City have reportedly made a bid, Man United are very interested in Fred as Jose Mourinho is looking to replace veteran Englishman Michael Carrick and the Ukraine-based midfield player is high on the list.

Fred – full name Frederico Rodrigues Santos – joined Shakhtar Donetsk from Brazilian side Internacional in 2013 and has made over 90 appearances for the club.

He is a Brazil international and represented the Seleccao in the 2015 Copa America in Chile.

Premier League giants Manchester United are almost certain to boost their squad when the transfer window reopens in two months time.

The Red Devils are in need of reinforcements especially in defense and midfield and West Ham United star Declan Rice could be one of the players signed in January.

According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester United want to sign Declan Rice and they might need to pay as much as 70 million pounds for him.

Declan Rice has already said that his future lies with West Ham United as he has a contract that does not expire until the summer of 2024 but his stance could change in no time.

Manchester United were one of several clubs interested in signing him during this summer’s transfer window but the England international player stayed with the Hammers for the start of the season.

Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini have not been adequately replaced since the midfielders left Manchester United earlier this year and the signing of Declan Rice would go a long way to rectify that problem.

Fellaini left Manchester United to join Chinese Super League (CSL) outfit Shandong Luneng during the winter transfer window in January, while Ander Herrera signed for PSG on a free transfer.

Donny Van Der Beek

Manchester United manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer, who could be shown the exit door due to poor results, is far from convinced with what he has seen from Ajax youngster Donny Van de Beek so far this season.

The Dutchman was linked with a switch to the Old Trafford outfit in the summer but the Norwegian tactician turned down the chance to capture his services.

According to British media The Mirror, Solskjaer was pleased with the fact that Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay were available ahead of the season, hence, he kicked against splashing £35m on the midfielder.

Unfortunately, the decision seemed to have backfired judging by the team’s lack of creativity in the middle of the pitch.

Despite the current uninspiring form at Old Trafford, reports claimed that Solskjaer isn’t ready to change his mind and he won’t be competing with Real Madrid for the Ajax youngster when the winter transaction period commences in January.

Real Madrid are now tipped as the possible destination for the Dutchman who helped Ajax to a semifinal spot in last season’s Champions League competition.

The Los Blancos are told to offer an increased price of £100m by the Eredivisie side if they must lure the young midfielder to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Nemanja Matic

Manchester United could lose another player to Serie A gaints Inter Milan in January as reports are linking midfielder Nemanja Matic with a move to the San Siro outfits.

The midfielder hasn’t found his best form for the Red Devils since the start of the season and Solskjaer isn’t giving him the game time he would love to see.

The former Chelsea star has featured in just three games so far and he could be leaving the Old Trafford in the winter if reports emanating from Italy is anything to trust.

Italian publication Corriere Dello Sport reported that the 31-year-old is one of the players whom Antonio Conte is hoping to work within the second half of the campaign.

The Italian manager worked with Matic during their days at Stamford Bridge and Conte is hoping to reunite with the highly-rated Serbian international.

It should be recalled that Chilean and Belgian strikers Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku both dumped the Red Devils for the Nerrazurris in the summer as they were surplus to requirements before the start of the season.

Matic will become the third United player to leave for the Serie A club this year if Milan successfully seal a deal with the Premier League side.
