With the addition of Fred, United have made their midfield stronger, with lights of Pogba, Matic, Mata, Herrera, and now Fred.[spacer height=”30px”]

The Brazilian is known to play as a defensive midfielder, which would make it easier for him to make play transitions from defense to offense and vice versa.[spacer height=”30px”]

Wether this transfer will be a sucess or a flop for United is yet to be seen. And how Jose Mourinho fits Fred into his gameplay would decide the future of this young talent.[spacer height=”30px”]
