    24 Brazilian midfielder playing for Shakhtar Donetsk. Duncan saying we want him in January transfer window in his latest podcast.

    Is this the bloke they call Fred? If so, apparently Pep is also keen on this guy as a long term replacement for Fernandinho.

    Apart from that, I know nothing about him :nervous:

    I think he's more of an attacking midfielder than a defensive one. I've always liked the guy just because of his name.

    Yes. Not the first time we have been linked to him under Mou.

    No he is known as Rod, not Fred. At least to his mates anyway.

    Apparently he signed a new contract with Shakhtar today or yesterday.

    Box to box from the little I have seen. Lots of dribbling, lots of tackling and an eye for goal - think Naby Keita.

    These are the types of players we should be signing. Perfect profile.

    Yeah. Exactly why I don't see how he replaces Fernandinho for City.

    Sánchez is the smokescreen for Fred. Next level Mou tactics

    Him signing a new deal enables Shakhtar to get a decent fee for him. Doesn't mean it's the end for a potential transfer.

    Sign players who’ve been done for doping issues and haven’t set the world alight in a poor league? Ok I’m sold let’s do it...

    Are the media linking us to every City target so they can run with the whole “City are superior to United” stories when we inevitably don’t get them?

    We’re probably not even in for Sanchez.

    They need a DM back-up for sure. Yaya is finished.

    One definitely who can cover Fernandinho and eventually replace him as Yaya finishes his contract off in the summer.

    If Fred has signed a new contract, then it will probably put a swift end to this. The bigger line in that article in my opinion is that we don't have any interest in signing Julian Weigl anymore, big mistake if true :(.

    He seems to have a line to Jose, and thats what buys him any credibility in here.

    Wouldn’t be a worse strategy than we’ve had over the last few years bar a few players to be fair

    Maybe 5 years ago, sure. Signing a contract doesn't mean much these days.

    Even more so these days, players who want to move for a reasonable fee have to run down their contracts, that is of course unless they have their agents put release clauses in the papers they sign!

    Clubs are going to demand 40m minimum for every player on their books, the only way out is to leave on a bosman or put clauses in etc.

    Fred said he will consider he's too good for his shirt and walk away. Right?

    Victor Lindelöf signed a new contract 6 months before we signed him. The motive varies.
