#5 Fred speaks about United move
Manchester United have completed the signing of Brazilian midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk. The Brazil international was long-linked to the Red Devils and his move was finally made official yesterday.
After signing for the Theatre of Dreams, the midfielder spoke of his joy at being able to represent a club that holds such a magnitude in the world of football. The Brazilian revealed that he is excited to play for the club that means only greatness.
In his first interview since the transfer, Fred had this to say to Manutd.com: “I’m really happy,” he said. “I’m so happy to be here and to have the opportunity to play for this club. It’s a huge club with great history and it’s a real honour to perform for United. I’m just so happy to have completed the transfer and now look forward to playing for the club.
“Manchester United, as I say, is a huge club. When I was young, it was a name I used to hear and it was a name I used to see on computer games and I used to play with the team. For me, Manchester United means greatness.”
Meanwhile, Sami Khedira has been linked with a move to the Premier League with archrivals Manchester United and Liverpool credited with an interest for the midfielder.
He, however, gave an update about his future, stating that he is content with life in Turin.
“I am happy at Juventus”, he said.
“We signed Emre Can and I know him very well. I think he will be a great addition for Juve. He will settle in well, I am sure about that.”
