"Gilberto Silva [his agent] is a guy in which I trust, he deals with all off-pitch stuff".

After a season, mostly termed as a "failure", the Portuguese is expected to go all out during the summer transfer window to strengthen the squad. "You hear all the time some rumours, and sometimes you're not sure, and you get lost in all the messages".

The Manchester Evening News reports Fred's transfer from Shakhtar is close to completion, with United ready to tie up a £53m deal to bring him to the club.

Toby Alderweireld is also on Mourinho's radar, with Tottenham said to be demanding a fee in the region of £75 million for the Belgian centre-back.

Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred has attracted interest from a number of clubs following his performances over the past two seasons.

"We'll get exactly the amount he costs", he added. "This will be a market price, the fair price, and it will be beneficial both for the club inviting Fred and for us".

'That is, I can somewhat feel that Fred will be more expensive than Fernandinho and Alex Teixeira'.

Speaking of his contract extension at Barca ahead of next month World Cup in Russia, Umtiti told reporters, "On my contract extension, I have no news".

"I think their talent is fantastic and the creativity of the Brazilian player can not be measured".

Fred began flirting with United in January, angering City and ultimately prompting them not to sign him, a decision that may come back to haunt Guardiola - though, with the depth of quality now at City's disposal, he's probably better suited to a move to United. City won the Premier League at a canter, breaking many league records along the way, finishing on 100 points, whilst Liverpool have enjoyed unprecedented success in the Champions League, and face Real Madrid in the final of the competition this weekend in Kiev.
