Manchester United summer signing Fred has suffered an ankle injury during Brazil training session, as the team prepare for the 2018 World Cup this summer.

Brazil national team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar has confirmed that United midfielder Fred has suffered an ankle trauma when the Selecao were in training on Thursday.

On 5 June 2018, the Red Devils reached an agreement to sign Fred, who is now part of Brazil’s squad for the World Cup in Russia.

The 25-year-old, who sustained the injury during a challenge from Casemiro, is seemingly doubtful for the tournament.

But the team doctor has revealed that Fred and national team coach Tite will have to be patient and wait for assessment over the knock.

“Today Fred had trauma in his ankle but it is too early to say anything about it,” Lasmar is quoted by The Independent.

“Tomorrow we watch to see what happens and then decide if we need to do any exams or not, but at the moment it is too early to say anything about him.”

Fred, who joined Manchester United from Shakhtar Donetsk, has managed to score 14 goals in 156 appearances for the Ukrainian side.
