Fred is already learning English following his transfer to Manchester United from Shakhtar Donetsk this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that the Brazilian midfielder has already been making the effort to try and pick up the language of his new country after officially signing for the Red Devils last month.

The same report says that Fred has signed a five-year deal at Manchester United believed to be worth around £175,000 a week as Jose Mourinho moved quickly to bolster his midfield options at Old Trafford.

The story claims that Fred is already making the effort to learn English as he looks to makes his transition to life in England as seamless as possible.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are still believed to be on the lookout for a number of other new signings this summer as they look to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next term.

The Red Devils finished in second place in the Premier League table last season as they missed out on a trophy in Mourinho’s second campaign in charge.

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