Feels a bit like we are being thrown out there by his agent because City have passed on him.
Is he going to be in Brazil's starting XI in the world cup? Maybe we can take a much closer look at him if he is
I’d be genuinely interested in knowing what people make of us signing a convicted doper. Served his time, or be wary?
Unless some huge development (his club did well in CL, or injuries to one of the familiar midfielder faces...) he would not make it at this rate.
Think we are being used to get city to make their move, His agents will want a quick decision from city and if they dont firm up after this, they will offer him around to other clubs.

No idea if he prefers one or the other, but I'm sure both the agent and Shakhtar would like to spark a bidding war.
PED head Fred.
He has been called up recently.
How did he play tonight fellas??
Perfect for Pep then.
I'm sure he'll be itching to join us especially after he watches our breathtaking attacking display that was on show tonight.
Looks a bit of a Jack of all trades to me, don't really think that's what we need.
The PL table tells the sad truth
We keep targeting all these players but the question we need to ask is are all these players able to perform under Jose? It's shocking...
Jose bought these players, so you can't blame Van Gaal or Moyes
Mhiki isn't playing the way he used to like he did at Dortmund
Pogba isn't playing the way he used to like he did at Juventus
Sanchez isn't playing the way he used to like he did at Arsenal
Our attacking players can't seem to perform under Jose because he's stifled them. Zlatan and Lukaku are out and out strikers, so need to remain forward and closer to goal.
The formation or players he picked today were just atrocious. Mourinho may not be the person to take the club to its glory days. I mean he will get you the odd trophy or so with his negative tactics but I don't really know if that's going to benefit the club in the longer run.
Better than Kleberson, way worse than Essien, more fitter than Anderson. Good backup but not first team material. I don't even know what Tite saw in him (but wtf do I know, right? I once thought that Pato would be a good player). Anyway, he is a bit like Herrera (on dope, ha!) and has the same pros/cons.
Can he dance?
Yes! But not as good as this:
Don’t we already have him?
I mean I see him every home game, pre match walking around getting his picture taken with the kids
He should totally wear Fred the mascots costume for the unvieling
There's a scene in one of the Star Trek reboots where (I think) Kirk says: "fire everything".
Message to board: "buy everyone"!!
He is far better than Paulinho or Renato Augusto. Arthur is far better than both too. Fred and Arthur will not play, Joginho gone to Italy and Fabinho not even called to the nt because Brazilian nt coaches tend to change the team only after be eliminated in the wc.
Watch what is gonna happen: Brazil will lose to France in the semi, or to some Belgium of life before that and in the next friendly Fred will be starter.
Haven’t been overly sold on him on the occasions I’ve seen him, not convinced he’s good enough to make a big difference to what we’re seeing now. We need big game aggressive players now, not more passive players
Wasn't he involved in a doping incident?
Anyways I've heard good things but don't know anything about him, usually, Brazillian Shakhtar players are great.
Would have preferred us to sign Arthur but heard that Barcelona recently tied that one up. If Fred is any good at keeping the ball I'd be very interested in us signing him, regardless of the City link.
Nope. Not what we need...
(Sees that he's represented by Special1Agency)
Well that settles it.
I think that's probably going to be the case for most players whilst Pep is at City sadly.
Oh? I haven't read that. what's the story?
Imagine him attacking the space. Will be mesmeric!
I rate Fred but if United sign him i suspect Mourinho will play 4-2-3-1 forever.
All action box-box player with good technical ability/passing range. Looks like he'd be a reasonable fit from what I've seen (which admittedly will be less than some). What am I missing?
Err more like City didn't want him anymore and now his CEO and agent is trying to pimp him out to United or other teams
Yes, very few of us here at this forum are keen to know this. However, one needs to be realistic - currently, City is miles ahead, hence it is understandable if players may opt to play for the (currently) best team in England, as it gives them better chances to win big trophies (especially considering that city also have enough financial firepower to pay good salaries)
Just like Sanchez eh
Fact is the truth could be either or neither
Seems so, at least according to that Sammy Lee piece on Goal this week. They reportedly prioritised Fred and Mahrez in January because they were considered 'gettable' midway through the season. Both players have now dropped down the order of priority on an expanded list of targets for the summer.
Having said that, this is only Goal.com.
