Fred joined Manchester United from Ukrainian side Shakthar Donestk for a fee of £52.5m during the summer as the Brazilian completed the deal during the World Cup.

Fred might not have any Brazilian in the Manchester United squad for him to relate with, but United rivals Manchester City boast of the likes of Ederson and Fernadinho in their squad.

Fred has revealed that he doesn’t have time to relate with his teammates from the other side of Manchester, but his wife relates with the wives of Ederson and Fernandinho.

Fred has now revealed some of the players he’s close to in the United dressing room, as he revealed that he’s close friends with Paul Pogba, Andreas Pereira and Eric Bailly and that they even find time to play video games.

He told the official Manchester United website in an interview: “My wife talks a lot with Fernandinho and Ederson’s wives.

“For the players, the fixtures and training schedules are very different so we end up not having time. I hang out more with the United squad – Andreas Pereira and the players who speak Spanish.

“Even those who speak English. We meet after work to play video games and have dinner. It is important for the team. Paul Pogba, Andreas, Eric Bailly… we are close friends.”
