Commenting further, Mourinho admitted to being torn over who he wants to progress deep into the tournament - due to wanting his Red Devils stars to have a rest before the new season.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has predicted that Nigeria will progress into the round of 16 behind Argentina from Group D at this year's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

Despite their highest league finish since Alex Ferguson retired, Mourinho was heavily criticised for adopting cautious tactics in several big games as United were often made to look ponderous in comparison to stylish City's commitment to attack.

The 25-year-old Brazilian midfielder had been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in the days leading up to the official confirmation, and Fred will now prepare to link up with his new Manchester United team-mates later this summer.

Fred is really excited to join the Mancunian club after having being Jose Mourinho's prime target for quite a while.

With Michael Carrick retiring and Marouane Fellaini likely to leave, midfield was one area that needed his attention.

Fred was born in Belo Horizonte and moved to Europe in 2013 from Brazilian club Internacional.

United fans are unlikely to get much of a glimpse of Fred at the World Cup in Russian Federation, though, as he is yet to start an global under current coach Tite. However, FIFA extended the punishment to a worldwide ban in 2016 which ruled him out for four months.

Fred, who will become the fourth most expensive player in United history after Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Angel Di Maria, underwent a successful medical earlier this week.
