Fred seals Manchester switch


Fred signed a five-year deal with Manchester United Thursday.

After much speculation, he made the move from Shahktar Donetsk, hailing Manchester United as "the biggest club in the world".

Fred can stay for a sixth year as an option in the deal.

Fred told the club's website, www.manutd.com: "This is the biggest club in the world and I am delighted to be a part of this amazing team. To work with Jose Mourinho, who has won so many trophies in his time as a coach, is an opportunity not to be missed. 

"I cannot wait to get started and to meet my new team-mates. I would like to thank everyone at Shakhtar Donetsk for everything they have done for me over the past five years. 

"This is a very exciting time for me with my focus now fully on the World Cup with Brazil." 

Fred missed Brazil's World Cup opening draw against Switzerland with an ankle injury but is expected to be part of the squad to face Costa Rica.
