Manchester city offers for Fred more than 50 million euros

Manchester United to rival City for Shakhtar Donetsk defensive midfielder

Manchester United to rival City for Shakhtar Donetsk defensive midfielder

Liverpool are 18 points below Manchester City and are looking to finish second in the league as there is very little chance of catching Guardiola's side given their rampant form since August.

Although Coutinho will no longer be able to provide the trio with ammunition, they still have the speed and guile to trouble Pep Guardiola's side at the back.

Manchester City have told Shakhtar Donetsk that they are willing to pay around £45m to sign Brazilian midfielder Fred (24). Everything is going their way, they are scoring many times in the last minute - this is credit to them obviously because they keep pushing. You've got to be [wary] of the attacking prowess that they've got but there are areas of weakness.

City, however, will look to repeat their dominant 5-0 victory over Liverpool at the Etihad in September, although they will be without injured striker Gabriel Jesus, who scored a brace that day.

The Reds have had a busy January transfer window so far with Philippe Coutinho moving to Barcelona and Virgil Van Dijk set to make his Premier League debut for the club this weekend.


The former Sevilla man damaged tendons in his ankle back in December during a UEFA Champions League group stage game and has been on the sidelines ever since as the Reds embarked on an impressive festive period run of form.

But after their win over Manchester United, and even the fixture we had ourselves against Wolves from the same division, was it any surprise.

Coach Eddie Niedzwiecki is in temporary charge of the team for the trip to Old Trafford.

Elsewhere, Tottenham host Stoke and Leicester are at Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea.
