Fred admits he misses Manchester United teammate Alex Telles.

Telles is currently on-loan with Sevilla, though the pair are again together this week with Brazil.

"We've got two games with the Brazilian Selecao," Fred told United's in-house media team. "Alex and I will be reunited. He's a great friend. I miss him and I hope he's happy in Seville. It's always good to catch up with friends with the national team, representing your country. I hope we do well."

The Selecao are among the favourites to lift the World Cup trophy in Qatar and the United midfielder believes his nation will go far in the tournament, which starts in November.

Fred added: "I hope Brazil are champions. And they'll [Man United fans] get behind us. I know they'll be supporting England but we're very good, highly focused and it's going to be a great tournament.

"At the World Cup, I hope Brazil do very well and, with all due respect to England, I hope we win it."
