Chelsea midfielder, Willian Borges da Silva, has remained coy over joining his compatriot Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos at Manchester United.
Willian however is confident that Fred will make the grade in England’s top flight.
“Of course, no doubt, no doubt about that. He has a lot of quality, he can improve a lot.
“He goes to one of the best teams in the world and I’m happy for him.
“I hope he does well at Manchester United.
“He’s very happy to come to the Premier League to play, we talked a little bit about that.
“He’s excited to start but now it’s time to think about the World Cup and think about the national team,” he told reporters at Brazil’s training camp.
Willian, who made almost as many Premier League appearances (16) off the substitutes bench as he did starts (20) last season, spoke on his own future thus: “I was happy with my performance during the season, I played very well, I always try to do my best, always try to work hard and sometimes to stay on the bench is difficult but I respect the decision of the manager, always.
“I don’t have any more to say about my club because now I want to have focus here with the national team on the World Cup,” he said.
