ESPN FC's transfer rater: Fred to United
The Brazilian midfielder has been linked with a move to Old Trafford.
David Cartidge of Football Whispers reflects on the possible transfer: "Shakhtar Donetsk's latest Brazilian sensation is set be subject of a tug-of-war between the two Manchester clubs this summer with United edging ahead of City in the race.
"After earning bragging rights in the derby with a 3-2 win, Jose Mourinho wants to land the midfielder to bolster his options for next season.
"City's interest in the 25-year-old has been long standing, including an enquiry in January, but Mourinho is moving fast to secure his signature.
"If an auction ensues then a fee of more than £50 million may be reached."
ESPN FC's rating: 3.4 (1.0 - unlikely, 3.0 - good chance, 5.0 - done deal).
