Shakhtar Donetsk is preparing to pull off one of the biggest transfers in the history of Ukrainian football.
“Shakhtar” and “Manchester United” has agreed to transfer to Fred for 50 million euros, informs a portal “Dynamomania”. The transaction will take place in the summer of 2018.
Originally the main contender for Fred was considered the “Manchester city”, but over time, the interest of the “Citizens” to the national team of Brazil had cooled.
Transfer Fred will be a repetition of the largest transactions in the history of Ukrainian football. In 2016 Shakhtar for € 50 million sent to Chinese “Jiangsu Side” the Brazilian midfielder Alex Teixeira.
Fred will be the fifth Brazilian in the history of Shakhtar sold at least 30 million euros. In addition to Teixeira, the list includes Fernandinho (moved to Manchester city), Willian (Anzhi) and Douglas Costa (Bayern).
Fred stands at Shakhtar since July 2013. In all competitions the Brazilian has played 150 matches and scored 15 goals and gave 13 assists.
