Manchester City look to Bundesliga superstar after cooling interest in Fred

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred has told ESPN Brasil that he did have interest from Manchester City, and could still join Pep Guardiola's men in the summer.

"City had appeared in pole position to land Fred this summer after being unable to complete a deal for the Brazilian in January".

"A victory against Everton will ensure that three points in the Manchester derby in April will make City's lead unassailable - though they can afford to draw or lose on Merseyside if United do the same to Swansea earlier in the day".

"He's ready for the next stage, because as well as being good, he's also very professional". Already considered among the best holding midfielders in Europe, the player still has his best years ahead of him, which is why it is unsurprising that two of the biggest clubs in England are after him.

Manchester United are now frontrunners in the race to sign Fred.

"Fred is ready to play in the strongest league [in Europe]".

Fred said in January that City's attempts to sign him in January ended because Shakhtar did not want to sell him while they were still active in the Champions League.

"[Pep] Guardiola did not talk to me, but there were people from City who talked to my agent".

It now remains to be seen which way the 25-year-old heads off to in the summer, with both Manchester City and Manchester United vying for his signature.

Fred seemed certain he was going to join the runaway Premier League leaders at the end of the season.

However, the Shakhtar star made it very clear that he wasn't obsessed with the idea of playing for Pep Guardiola, revealing he would be "happy" to play for the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea or Arsenal if they came along. Whatever side of Manchester he ends up on there is no doubt he will be a great addition to the premier league.
