Fred Waiting For Pep Guardiola Call Amid Manchester City Speculation

Fred Waiting For Pep Guardiola Call Amid Manchester City Speculation

United boss Jose Mourinho wants the Brazilian midfielder on board in January but faces competition from cross-town rival Pep Guardiola.

English Grand is actively trying to get the Brazilian midfielder "Shakhtar" Fred.

Talks between the clubs have been going since past year and the City top brass will not want a repeat of the Alexis Sanchez saga and miss out on another top target.

The 24-year-old has emerged as the main candidate to replace Yaya Touré in the summer when the Ivorian's long stay at the Etihad Stadium finally comes to an end.

City and Shakhtar, who sold Fernandinho to the Manchester club for £30 million in 2013, have a good working relationship but hopes of signing Fred for a similar fee have faded and the price is now thought to have risen to in excess of £40 million.

Shakhtar's chief executive Sergei Palkin traveled to Manchester for informal talks after City's first defeat of the season on 6 December to Shakhtar, and City are hoping a deal can be done.

Guardiola was impressed with the Brazilian global when they played each other and Fred admits he would love to play for the Catalan coach. If there is any interest I will talk with my agent, and the family.

"At the exit of the locker room, he stopped me and said we had a good game, as they are a very hard team to beat", Fred added. But he did not ask me to play with him.

Fred's career has not been without controversy.
