New Manchester United Signing Suffers Big Injury Scare

Willian: What new Man United signing told me about his transfer World Cup 2018: Manchester United-bound Fred injures ankle during training

Manchester United made their first move to land Fred back in April, Shakhtar Donetsk's CEO has revealed, with the Red Devils eager to beat the competition to a £52.5 million (€60m/$70m) midfielder.

Manchester United-bound Fred has suffered a World Cup injury scare after limping out of Brazil's training session on Thursday with an ankle injury.

Fred tried to remain on the pitch but could not continue and was treated with ice on the sidelines.

It is too early to say, we have to see how he develops in the next 24 hours,"Brazil physician Rodrigo Lasmar said when asked for a full diagnosis on Thursday evening". "He started working out right after". Although the severity of the injury is now unknown, this could be a blow to his hopes of taking part in the World Cup.

Fred has made eight appearances for Brazil and made head coach Tite's final 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Midfielder Fernandinho, who started against Croatia last Sunday, was left out to open space for Neymar.

But Brazil manager Tite expects Fred to be fine to resume training with the national side ahead to the World Cup. He sat out training on Friday - Brazil's last session in London before they fly to Vienna - to work alone with medical staff.

But Marcelo told reporters: "This is the World Cup".

They will also face group matches against Costa Rica and Serbia, before hopefully progressing to the knockout stages.
