New Man United Addition Fred Suffers Ankle Injury in Brazil Training


Brazil's Fred has suffered what has been described as "ankle trauma" just one week away from the beginning of this summer's World Cup finals.

Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said Fred will be monitored, with Tite's men set to play Austria on Sunday in their final friendly before Russian Federation 2018.

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".

The midfielder was pictured receiving treatment after a challenge from Casemiro, and Lasmar has suggested that Fred and Brazil must wait before making an assessment over the knock. "Tomorrow we will know whether he will have to be further examined or not".

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.
