Whilst Nemanja Matic greatly impressed for United following his summer transfer from rivals Chelsea, France global Paul Pogba had a season to forget, with the former Juventus man putting in a number of ineffective performances that saw Mourinho lose faith in the 25-year-old.

But United will now look to push through a deal while Fred is in the UK, with the Brazilian - and the rest of his teammates - holed up in Tottenham's training facility until June 8. His ability to find any player across the pitch is quite impressive and the Brazilian is a cool customer when on the ball and does not panic even in the toughest of situations during matches.

He will be part of Brazil's squad that will play against Croatia at Anfield and is known for his all-action displays.

Brazil midfielder Fred has revealed he is aware of strong interest from Manchester United. Manchester City offered 50 million euros for the signature of the midfielder in January transfer window but the fees got rejected as the club seeks more for him.

Fred, who has five years left on his contract with Shakhtar, is likely to cost United around £52 million.

They can tackle, pass, dribble and score the odd goal, but there are differences in their styles.

A brilliant tackler of the ball his defensive skills are impressive and should he come to the side he would seamlessly fit into the three man midfield system that Mourinho has been using for quite some time.

Paul Pogba has been linked with a return to Juventus this summer.

The Reds, like City, also considered Lazio's Sergej Milinković-Savić, but neither club was willing to spend over €100million.

Anything else we should know about?

The Serb has enjoyed a fabulous season since moving to Manchester United from Chelsea. Fred's career has been pretty successful thus far.

In the end, he only served a four-month ban.
