It's understood City were on the verge of signing Fred - who was being viewed as Fernandinho's long-term replacement - but the runaway Premier League leaders have now pulled out of the transfer race.

He told ESPN Brasil: "City are a great team, I would be happy to play there".

I'm still 25, there's a lot to grow and learn, play and observe great players of these clubs. In the middle of the year, we wait to see what will happen'. Unfortunately it did not work, but now I'm focused here, out of the window we try to forget and focus on football.
