Nemanja Matic has given his seal of approval to Manchester United’s signing of Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk this summer.

The Red Devils officially confirmed that the Brazilian midfielder as their second recruit of the summer last week as Jose Mourinho moved quickly to add to his squad ahead of next season.

Matic and Fred were on opposing teams as Brazil came up against Serbia in the World Cup in Russia last week, and the Manchester United midfielder gave his shirt to the Red Devils new boy after the game.

Now, the Serbian midfielder has opened up on why he thinks that the 25-year-old will end up proving to be a quality signing for the Red Devils.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Matic said: “I spoke to him after the game, he is a great player, he will bring quality to our team.

“We will see. I think we’ll understand each other very well.”

Meanwhile, Manchester United are still thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they aim to assemble a squad capable of winning the title next term.

The Red Devils finished in second place in the Premier League table last term and without a trophy under Mourinho in the Portuguese coach’s second campaign at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
