European giants confirm £45m Brazil star will join Man United or Man City

Manchester City must first negotiate a hard encounter at Everton before they can dream of winning the Premier League title by beating neighbours Manchester United, midfielder Kevin De Bruyne said.

He explained people from Manchester City spoke to his agent, and that the offer was still there, only failing to materialise in January because he couldn't play in the Champions League.

With eight matches remaining, City hold a 16-point advantage over United in the standings and a win over Everton in their next fixture will set up the opportunity to lift the top-flight trophy against their neighbours at the Etihad Stadium on April 7.

Fred, 25, looked set for a move to the Etihad as City were reported to see him as the flawless replacement for Fernandinho, 33.

Jose Mourinho will be in the market for midfield reinforcements over the summer ahead of Michael Carrick's retirement and Marouane Fellaini's probable departure.

Manchester City and Manchester United are ready to do battle over Brazilian star Fred. "In the middle of the year, we wait to see what will happen".

The race to sign Fred in the summer seems to be setting up nicely now, and Manchester United will surely take heart from Palkin's comments.

"City are a great team, I would be happy to play there. If not to Manchester City, then to Manchester United", said the club chief.

And Palkin, speaking to Corriere dello Sport, confirmed that the midfielder would indeed leave for Manchester at the end of the season. He is not only a very good player but also a very good professional. Whatever side of Manchester he ends up on there is no doubt he will be a great addition to the premier league.

A report from The Times claims that United's interest in the 25-year-old midfielder has convinced City to weigh up other options across Europe, with former transfer target Julian Weigl now back on Guardiola's radar.
