In January, the Daily Mail reported that Manchester City were pursuing a £50million deal for Fred, with manager Pep Guardiola viewing him as a future successor to Fernandinho. Fred, who has been impressive for Shakhtar in the Champions League this season, had been the subject of interest from Manchester city but it now looks like their rivals on the other side of Manchester have entered the race.

The Premier League leaders are refusing to give up in their efforts to get an agreement pushed through, but they are set to face competition from a familiar foe. The FC crew discuss David Silva's starring performance against Stoke, arguing his consistency in Manchester City's midfield is unmatched. It's always hard to watch a club you love falling from grace, but to do that in the shadow of their city rivals consistently winning everything is a hard pill to swallow.

United and City locked swords in pursuit of Alexis Sanchez in January, with the Red Devils ultimately emerging victorious, and they may be about to scrap it out for another high-profile addition.
