Cape Town - Diogo Dalot is close to completing his move to Manchester United after the Premier League club's signing of Brazil midfielder Fred.

Dalot is a 19-year-old Portugal U21 international who will join United from Porto having stepped up from the club's reserve side this past season.

The full back has completed his medical at United and is expected to sign for Jose Mourinho's side once they pay his £17.4 million release clause.

Fred, meanwhile, moves from Shakhtar Donetsk for a reported £50 million having completed his medical on Monday.

A club statement read: "Manchester United is delighted to announce it has reached an agreement with Shakhtar Donetsk for the transfer of Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos (Fred)."
