Thursday, May 17, 2018
The 25-year-old midfielder is on United’s radar following some impressive displays since arriving at Shakhtar from Internacional in 2013.
Now, having racked up 101 league appearances in Ukraine, he admits it might be time to move on.
And the Brazil international says his future will be sorted out once he is back from international duty in Russia this summer.
Fred, who remains under contract until 2021, told SporTV: “I’m very happy at Shakhtar. I’ve been working well here but it has been five years.
“I made it clear to the club that I was very happy here but I want to make a bigger leap in my career. There are other clubs interested in England and France. I want to make a bigger leap, I made it clear to the club.
“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 have dreams of playing in major clubs in Europe. I made it clear that it’s my moment.
“As soon as I come back from the World Cup we will sit down, talk and look at the options.”
