Manchester United’s summer signing Fred Rodrigues joined the squad at the club’s Los Angeles base for their 2018 pre-season tour.

Fred has been on holiday after representing Brazil at the 2018 World Cup in Russia that came to a close on Sunday July 15. Brazil were knocked out of the tournament in the quarter-finals after losing 2-1 to Belgium.
