Fred explains why he chose Manchester United over City and PSG

Fred admits his agent convinced him to sign for Manchester United this summer.

Fred became Jose Mourinho’s first signing of the summer when he joined from Shakhtar Donestk in June and made his Premier League debut in the 2-1 win against Leicester.

And the 25-year-old explained why he chose to sign for United despite offers from other European clubs.

“There were options in England and in Europe,” Fred told ESPN.

“Manchester City, PSG, but I chose United. I spoke to my agent Gilberto Silva, who played for Arsenal. He told me that United was a huge club. I spoke to my family and friends.

“When I said United, I saw their faces. I’m sure that I made the right choice. I want to play in and win the Premier League, the best league in the world. I had a proposal from China too, but I didn’t want to go there because I wanted to join United.”
