United to rival City for Fred

Manchester United are ready to rival Manchester City again in the transfer market, this time for Brazilian midfielder Fred.

The Shakthar Dontesk ace had been linked up by City as a possible reinforcement for this month, but the Ukrainian giants are standing firm on a valuation of £50million.

Shkathar are in no rush to sell, and although City want him this window – they are ready to accept that he does not move now, but they are continuing talks with a view to landing him on a pre-contract ahead of the summer.

However, United are still interested in landing Fred – and they were actually on Fred’s trail before City as they looked at him last summer.

Sources close to United believe they remain interested and with City trying to broker a deal now – it can’t be ruled out that a rival bid from Old Trafford will be made.

Bookmakers feel if Fred does move this month, then it will be City with BetVictor pricing them at Evens, with United at 8/1.
