The midfielder Fred returns to the Seleção on Tuesday as a Manchester United player.

The Brazil worldwide arrived at Manchester United's training ground this morning to complete his £52million move to the club.

But Rivaldo, who helped Brazil to win the World Cup in 2002, believes Fred will have no such problems.

Manchester United fans are certainly enjoying the news that they've beaten Pep Guardiola's team to the signing of Fred, particularly since it was announced a year ago he's "definitely" signing for the blue side of Manchester.

Although the club is renowned for its history with Brazilian players, some non-Brazilian players have also established themselves with the former Europa League champions.

"I don't have any more to say about my club because now I want to have focus here with the national team on the World Cup".

Who is he and what position does he play?

With Michael Carrick retiring and uncertainty over Marouane Fellaini's future in Manchester, United have turned to the 25-year-old in a deal that it is reported will be worth £52million. I am proud of him.' Lucescu said.

Fred has made eight appearances for his country and has been named in Brazil coach Tite's final 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer.

He is industrious, dynamic, energetic and possesses a wide array of technical qualities, which could make the Belo Horizonte born player the ideal foil for Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba.

Shakhtar fans, who are usually proud to see their players go onto bigger clubs, wish him well.
