Fred gives verdict on Manchester United summer signings

2 min read

Fred believes Manchester United ‘will develop a lot’ after signing five new players in the summer transfer window.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer missed out on priority target Jadon Sancho after a prolonged transfer saga but still managed to add to his first-team squad with a late flurry of activity in the window.

Donny van de Beek was joined by four new arrivals on deadline day as United agreed deals to sign Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles, Facundo Pellistri and Amad Diallo.

Telles became only the second of the summer signings to have played for United as he impressed on his debut vs Paris Saint-Germain in midweek and Fred believes his fellow Brazilian will have a massive impact at Old Trafford.

“He’s a great person, I spoke to him shortly before he signed for us,” Fred told United Review.  “We had a good chat and he’s a really relaxed guy, a good person and a great player. He had a superb season at Porto and has played for other clubs where he did really well.

“I’m convinced he’ll add to and help the team and we’ll make him very welcome here. I’ll be here to help with whatever he needs, together with Bruno and the other players here who speak good Portuguese. I’m sure they’ll help him too, and we’ll work towards having a great season together.”

Pellistri impressed as he lined up for the U23s in their win over Everton on Friday night while veteran striker Cavani could make his debut against Chelsea this weekend.

United faced criticism for signing the 33-year-old free agent on deadline day but Fred has no doubts Cavani will answer his critics with his performances on the pitch.

Fred added: “He’s a superb centre-forward. He plays for Uruguay, and he has scored a lot of goals for Paris Saint-Germain. I’m sure he’ll bring a lot of passion to the team. Watching him play, you see he’s constantly battling, always looking to score. I’m sure that he’ll bring a lot to our group, our squad.

“I’m really rooting for this, that we can grow with his arrival, together with Telles and Facundo [Pellistri]. Our group will develop a lot. It’s going to be great, we hope he can help us score a lot of goals, help us fight. He’s a very experienced player so his arrival is great news for our team.”
