Shakhtar chief: Man Utd could beat Man City to Fred


"It is the best league in the world, I have no doubt, and I believe that my football would evolve", he added. The Brazilian worldwide is leaving Ukrainian giants, striken out from Champions League last night, by AS Roma, on an about 30 million euros fee.

"Either side could have picked up or dropped the wrong amount of points to have moved City's finishing line closer or further away". The Brazilian has been a vital component for the Premier League leaders this season and prior.

That result means that the title could be clinched against rivals Manchester United when they face off at the Etihad Stadium on April 7th. A statistic that definitely has not gone unnoticed in the eyes of Pep Guardiola.

"At this stage, you can understand City fans getting giddy at the prospect".

Shakhtar Donetsk have confirmed that in-demand midfielder Fred will be heading to Manchester this summer, with City and United set for another transfer tussle. Asked about the interest from City, Fred told ESPN Brasil: "It existed, yes, and it still exists".

The Brazilian has always been linked with a switch to the Etihad, but Ducker says the Blues are considering backing off from the move.

Manchester City, on the other hand, could possibly be eyeing Fred as a long-term replacement for his predecessor at Shakhtar - Fernandinho.

Fred, the 25-year-old Brazil global, has been linked as a potential long-term replacement for Fernandinho at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester United endured a horrific night on Tuesday but they are now looking to bolster their midfield options for next season.

Ducker's report included quotes from Shakhtar chief executive Sergei Palkin, who assured Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport Manchester will be the player's destination: "Fred will leave this summer".

That's all for this morning's media roundup. In the middle of the year, we wait to see what will happen'.
