The 25-year-old Shakhtar Donetsk star has been heavily touted as a target for Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils side as the Portuguese coach looks to strengthen his squad ahead of next season.

Fred is closing in on a move to Old Trafford if the widespread reports are to be believed, but the player himself has insisted that there is no deal in place as things stand.

“We have to try to forget things from outside.”

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge in 2013, and they were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley last month.
