Fred put in an impressive showing in midfield for Manchester United in their 2-1 pre-season win over Real Madrid last night.
The Brazil international really looks the business after arriving from Shakhtar Donetsk, and this video clip of his skill in a tight space shows what he’s all about.

Some United fans are understandably excited about what Fred could offer to the team, with many tipping him to form a fine partnership with Paul Pogba.

Fred and Pogba are yet to play together as the French World Cup winner will return late from his break after World Cup glory in Russia this summer.
But after some below-par form in a United shirt last season, it could be that the addition of Fred will finally give him the kind of partner he needs in the middle…
Fred & Pogba together are going to be unreal.
