Manchester City is all set to battle Manchester United & Arsenal for highly rated Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred.

City boss Pep Guardiola is looking to strengthen his defense & going to add midfielder to his ranks as back up to Fernandinho, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The 24-year old defensive midfielder is also seen as the their substitute to the role vacated by Yaya Toure, who is expected to be released by the club at the end of the season.

Looking at the other club’s interests, City is keen to sign the Brazilian before the World Cup & win the battle from Man United & Arsenal. Blues chiefs are happy to wait until summer for the all-action midfielder, given that he would be ineligible to play in the Champions League knockout stage.

Fred’s stock has continued to rise in recent months, with the Brazilian international impressing for Shakhtar domestically, as well as in the UEFA Champions League. The Citizens appear to be happy to wait until the summer to sign him though, as he would be ineligible to play for them in Europe this season.

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 international when they played each other and Fred admits he would love to play for the Catalan coach.

He told Gazetta dello Sport: “A friend gave me the news saying that City and Guardiola were interested in me.

“At the exit of the locker room, he (Guardiola) stopped me and said we had a good game.

“However, I confess, I wait impatiently for his call to arrive now. I think I would grow a lot with him.

“England is the best league in the world and I’ve always dreamed of playing there.”

However, Fred’s career took a shock when he was tested positive for banned diuretic hydrochlorothiazide while playing for Brazil at the Copa America in 2015.

NO matter what, if the deal is done with Fred & City wins the battle against Man United & Arsenal, more destruction can be expected from Blues.
