One player and colleague who has offered his congratulations is his Fred’s international teammate, Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino. The former 1899 Hottenheim forward, who notched 27 goals last season in a trophyless campaign for the Merseyside club had this to say on his compatriot’s move, in quotes carried by Metro:

“He’s is in the next room to me, he is my next rival but I congratulated him and I hope he has a lot of success playing at Manchester United. Now on the pitch it’s a derby, we won’t be able to avoid playing against each other but I wish him great success.”

Jurgen Klopp’s side might have ended a promising season with a dispiriting defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League final, but Liverpool are starting to look a threat after so many years in the Premier League wilderness. Whether that will equate to a title charge remain to be seen, but the potency of their attack certainly gives them a chance, so the addition of a quality box-to-box midfielder like Fred could be a great asset to United going forward.
