Fred 'confirms Manchester United transfer'

Liverpool signed a player last night but Manchester United and Gareth Bale dominate the back pages again.

The Express reports a '£320m Bale hitch', on the Mirror it's 'Gareth Bill' and the Star go with 'Jose can't pay for Bale'.

The consensus is United manager Mourinho has doubts the club can afford Bale, 28 after he secured a 13th European Cup for Real Madrid in Kiev on Saturday.

United have made a number of attempts to sign Bale in the past but his stock soared following that Catherine-wheel welly past Loris Karius.

Bale has four years left on his Real contract and would easily command a £150million transfer fee. He is also supposedly on £600,000-a-week as well.

From one United target to another: Fred is verified on Instagram, but he isn't on Twitter. There is no white tick in a blue circle related to his name but some United supporters are convinced this is him.

We have checked and it is genuinely Fred's account. His friend said, linking to a report citing the MEN's exclusive last week: 'Good, deserving.' Fred replied: 'Thank you, Nany.' The Nani connection remains alive at United.

United would prefer to conclude a deal for Fred, 25, before the World Cup and the MEN revealed last week they are close to reaching an agreement with the Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder.

Fred's agent Gilberto Silva flew to London last week and is believed to have held additional dialogue to escalate the transfer.

Fred confirmed at a press conference in Rio de Janeiro last week his representatives had held 'advanced talks with United' after a January switch to Manchester City collapsed.

Fred is now in England with the Brazil national team.

"There have been some advanced talks since January when I almost went to Man City," Fred said at a press conference in Rio de Janeiro.

"Soon after City, United talked to Shakhtar and my agents. And today, if I'm not mistaken, there is very strong interest from United."

A player plenty of United fans were desperate for the club to sign has joined another club. There will be some spin over Fabinho’s move to Liverpool but we will detail the full story later.

What it is worth stressing at this stage is the suggestion he 'rejected' United this summer or last is complete and utter nonsense.
