Fred- Man Utd poised to sign £52m midfielder Fred and teenage full-back Diogo Dalot

He congratulated Fred on his £52million move to Manchester United. He is regarded as one of the most promising box-to-box midfielders in Europe.

The midfielder was very close to joining Manchester City during the January winter transfer window but his wage demands saw the Citizens pull out of the deal.

The paperwork for the deal is nearly complete and the deal will be announced very soon.

United had been in the market for midfield reinforcements after seeing Michael Carrick head into retirement.

The Belgian global is reportedly a target for Arsenal this summer, and his departure from Old Trafford is all but confirmed as of now.

Mourinho guided Manchester United to a Europa League and League Cup double last season.

The transfer should hasten the exits of Italian full-back Matteo Darmian, who has been strongly linked with Juventus, and Netherlands defender Daley Blind, neither of whom has a long-term future under Mourinho.

The newspaper says United have agreed a deal worth around £52m including various performance-based add ons and Fred was all-set to be unveiled as their first major signing of the summer.

The highly rated 19-year-old has spent his entire career at Porto - where the current United boss once managed - and made 33 appearances in all competitions this season.
