Fred believes that each of Manchester United’s transfer deadline day signings will add to the squad and help the club have a ‘great season’.

The Brazilian midfielder has been impressed by Alex Telles, Edinson Cavani and Facundo Pellistri since they joined the club on a dramatic deadline day.

Fred has a good relationship with Telles in particular and revealed they spoke before he put pen to paper to move to 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.’

Cavani made his debut against Chelsea on Saturday and Fred thinks he will significantly bolster United’s frontline.

‘He’s a superb centre-forward,’ added Fred. ‘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.’
