Fred has joined up with his new Manchester United team-mates in California on their pre-season tour of the US.
The Brazilian, who was given an extended holiday following his World Cup campaign, posted a picture on Instagram confirming his arrival in Beverly Hills. And he was soon out training with the club’s head of strength and conditioning, Gary Walker.
Having signed for £52million from Shakhtar Donetsk, the midfielder will now get to work with Jose Mourinho’s side for the first time and the club welcomed him with a video on Twitter revealing that he will wear the number 17.

United also posted a picture of the 25-year-old on their Instagram with the caption: ‘Welcome to our new No 17.’
Fred shared a picture of his journey on his Instagram story, watching television with the caption: ‘Go to Los Angeles.’
He also posted a snap lying on a hotel bed, unwinding after the long flight. But it wasn’t long before he was out on the training pitch.
Mourinho will be delighted to have Fred join up with the squad after complaining about the scare resources he has to work with.
