Manchester United new boy Fred suffers 'ankle trauma' during Brazil training

14 June 2018

Brazil midfielder Fred has suffered an injury scare just one week before the World Cup in Russian Federation gets under way.

Having only just this week been part of a deal to feature at Old Trafford next season from Shakhtar Donetsk, Brazilian star Fred has suffered an injury on worldwide duty which may put him out of this summer's World Cup tournament in Russian Federation.

Brazil have been using Tottenham's training ground as their base ahead of flying out to Russian Federation - via their stop-off in Austria - and Real Madrid defender Marcelo also spoke to the press on Thursday afternoon.

"Tomorrow we will see what happens and decide if we need to carry out any exams but at the moment it's too early to say anything", Lasmar told reporters on Thursday.

Manchester United-bound Fred has been injured while training with Brazil ahead of their World Cup warm-up game against Austria on Sunday.

After that Brazil face Costa Rica and Serbia in Russian Federation.

The club announced that they had reached a deal to sign the Brazilian midfielder earlier this week, although stopped short of announcing him officially as a United.

Marcelo added: 'This is the World Cup.

"But I believe it's not that serious, I believe it's not a big problem for us and I think he'll be back with us as soon as possible".
