Manchester United is delighted to announce it has finalised the transfer of Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos (Fred) from Shakhtar Donetsk.

The player completed a medical and has agreed a five-year contract with the option to extend for a further year.
The 25-year-old Brazilian international midfielder has won a number of club honours, including three league titles in Ukraine.

Fred becomes Jose Mourinho’s second signing of the summer following the arrival of defender Diogo Dalot from Porto.

Manchester United announced earlier this month they had agreed a deal with Shakhtar, which Sky Sports News understands to be in the region of £52m plus bonuses, but had been waiting for Fred to be granted a work permit.
