Fred confirms Manchester City interest, but has eyes for Manchester United

Fred confirms Manchester City interest, but has eyes for Manchester United

Manchester City have cooled their interest in recent midfield target Fred according to reports today by The Times, Goal and Daily Mail.

"City are a great team, I would be happy to play there".

Fred added that he is also interested in joining Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal, and believes that he will develop and improve if he gets his desired move to the Premier League at the end of the season.

City seemingly teed up a deal for Fred by sending striker Olarenwaju Kayode to Shakhtar on loan earlier this month, and Guardiola may still be pursuing a deal.

Shakhtar chief executive Sergei Palkin has even admitted the Ukrainian club's star player is expected to leave in the summer, with Manchester his most likely destination.

That result means that the title could be clinched against rivals Manchester United when they face off at the Etihad Stadium on April 7th. Stay with us throughout the day here on as we bring all the latest news.

The two Manchester clubs could find themselves in another tug of war over Fred, and United's more pressing need for a midfielder and willingness to spend may seem them come out on top, but anything could happen.

Sources close to the deal have told me that City remain interested but United are ready to compete for a player rated very high by Jose Mourinho's scouts - who think he would be ideal next to Nemanja Matic. "It is the best league in the world, I have no doubt, and I believe that my football would evolve". "In addition to being very good, Fred is very professional".

"Of course yes. I would evolve", said Fred, who joined Shakhtar from Brazilian club Internacional in 2013.

"I'm still 25, there's a lot to grow and learn, play and observe great players of these clubs". Man City's Pep Guardiola communicates his stance on England's brightest talents and how they should learn their trade in a foreign country at a young age.
