Fred in line for Man City move

While the Alexis Sanchez saga dominates the headlines, Manchester City continue to plot the rest of their transfer business for 2018. There has been speculation that Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred is a leading target for Pep Guardiola’s side, and the Manchester Evening News now reports that City are prepared to pay up to £45 million for the Brazilian.

It’s believed Shakhtar are holding out for a higher fee, however, with Guardiola determined to recruit the player he has earmarked as Fernandinho’s long-term replacement. At 24, Fred is eight years younger than Fernandinho, who also enjoyed a spell at Shakhtar before moving to Manchester in 2013.
