Brazilian midfielder Fred was captured by Mourinho after lots of dramas and competitions from Manchester City and Arsenal for his signature.

The Shakhtar Donetsk man signed a five-year contract with the Red Devils which is reportedly at the cost of £53m.

After successfully completing Fred’s signature, Manchester United boss José Mourinho has completed his move for Porto youngster Diogo Dalot, who plays as a right-back for the Portuguese Primera side.

The 19-year-old defender was promoted to Porto’s first-team squad last season by Sergio Conciecao after a blistering performance with the youth set-up.

Dalot is a versatile, modern-day right-back who has the ability and speed to join the team while attacking by making overlapping runs. His attributes could make him a preferred option for the right-back position ahead of Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young in Mourinho’s starting lineup.

According to reports emanating from the Theater of Dreams, the Red Devils manager  ordered the club to release £20m for the youngster’s signature so as to convince Porto to let him go this summer.

According to whoscored, a player-rating site, Diogo is not known for rash tackles but he always time his tackles perfectly.

He possesses great abilities to win aerial duels, his long-range passes was topnotch. He is the type of defenders Mourinho loves to work with.
