Andreas Pereira is all set for his Fulham medical tomorrow, as he closes in on a Man United exit.
Manchester United’s squad is looking pretty thin on the ground right now, though that’s not stopping Erik ten Hag from continuing the clearout.
It feels refreshing to have a manager at the helm who has a clear identity and plan. United’s Dutch manager knows what he wants – and perhaps more importantly, knows what he doesn’t want.
Sadly for Andreas Pereira, he falls into the latter category. Earlier today, news broke claiming that Fulham had agreed on a deal to acquire the midfielder.
Now, Fabrizio Romano has another update in that brewing saga. After reaching an agreement with Fulham, it’s now been confirmed that Pereira’s medical will take place tomorrow.
United will set the 26-year-old for a deal totalling £13million, which is a great sale price for a man who cost United very little to buy.
Pereira’s contract at Fulham will run until 2026, with the Brazilian now having an excellent chance at playing week-in-week-out football in the Premier League.
Although it didn’t work out here for Pereira, that doesn’t take away from his talents as a footballer.
The Brazilian is an incredibly gifted midfielder who’ll go on to enjoy a successful career within the sport. Sadly, it was just never going to work out for him here, with far too much competition in his position.
This is one of these rare transfers that suits all involved. Fulham are getting a cracking player, Pereira is getting regular football and United are getting a nice transfer fee.
Hopefully, the deal is all signed, sealed and delivered soon, giving Pereira plenty of time to settle into his new surroundings.
