The Manchester Evening News is reporting that Manchester United are not the only club keen on signing the 25-year-old Brazilian in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United are set to face competition from Paris Saint-Germain for the signature of Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred this summer, according to reports in the British media.

'I made it clear to the club that I was very happy here but I want to make a bigger leap in my career.

Fred has spent the past five years on the books at Shakhtar after moving to Europe from Brazilian side Internacional. I worked with the players for a couple of years.

'There are other clubs interested in England and France.

"Now I just have to wait to get through the World Cup and see which is the best destination".

"I think I have to change a little". I made it clear that it's my moment. I have dreams of playing in major clubs in Europe. I have a contract until 2021. While City have also prioritised midfield reinforcement as they prepare to defend a Premier League title won with a record 100 points and retain an interest in Fred, the English champions regard Napoli's Italy global Jorginho as an alternative option.

Jose Mourinho has stressed that he will invest in a replacement for Michael Carrick, who played his final game for Man United on Sunday, over the summer.

The report further adds that if United are to beat PSG in this transfer race, they will have to meet the midfielder's release clause and cough up €60 million (£52.89m). The Old Trafford boss is in the market for as many as four new defenders and would prefer to move on a number of high-salaried fringe players, including Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian and Luke Shaw.
