Last season was a tough one for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United, despite finishing second in the Premier League. The Red Devils improved considerably in the league, registering an extra twelve points but the dominance of their rivals City left a real sour taste in the mouth for their supporters - along with an early Champions League exit and defeat in The FA Cup final. So something has to change.
United do boast an awful lot of quality but they came up short in important moments over the course of the campaign, so Mourinho will be eager to avoid a repeat. Already this summer he's signalled intent to go on and challenge their neighbours, with the big money signing of Brazilian Fred to re-enforce his midfield. The 25 year-old has been a man in demand for sometime so the Red Devils have done well to win the race for his signature after forking out around £50m - and he could well prove to be the first of many.
He's relatively unknown to many over in England but he comes over with a big reputation from his time with Shakhtar Donetsk, that's also earned him a spot in Brazil's World Cup squad. So what exactly can Manchester United supporters expect from him and what will he add to their midfield? Read our thoughts below and let us know your views on his arrival by tweeting us @FootyAccums!
