Brazil superstar Neymar was seen congratulating Manchester United‘s new signing Fred during the national side’s practice session. The Brazilian skipper gave Fred a hug before they took to the field.
It wasn’t just Neymar, as Atletico Madrid left-back Felipe Luis and Barcelona midfielder Paulinho were also seen greeting the 25-year-old midfielder, who joined the Premier League giants from Shakhtar Donetsk.
The club will be revealing further details about their new signing, who underwent a medical at Old Trafford.
Neymar, who made a return to football after breaking his foot in February this year, scored a screamer against Croatia in the side’s 2-0 friendly win at Anfield.
