Manchester United new boy Fred says the club's global support helped convince him to join the Reds.
The Brazil international has finalised his switch from Shakhtar Donetsk and is already looking forward to playing under Jose Mourinho, after aiming to help his country achieve World Cup glory in Russia.
After receiving a number of messages from United fans on social media while waiting for the transfer to be completed, it has provided a real boost to the midfielder, who appreciates the support.
“I want to thank all of the Manchester United fans, even now, just as I am signing,” he told MUTV at the Aon Training Complex.
“So many of them reached out to me and asked me to join the club and that really meant a lot to me.
”All I can say to you in return is that I’m going to run my hardest and work my hardest to make history for the club and the fans.
