Fred did not return to the national team until a 3-0 friendly win over Russian Federation in March and Tite was keen for his transfer to be completed before the World Cup starts on June 14.

The 29-year-old, who has scored eight times in 55 global appearances, felt last season was a good one personally but was coy about his plans after the summer.
