Andreas Pereira looks all set to leave Man United this summer.
Manchester United finally confirmed their first signing of the summer just yesterday, with Tyrell Malacia joining from Feyenoord.
Alongside that, the quickfire sale of squad players and those that aren’t deemed good enough continues. Several faces left on free transfers, while the club look to sell those that will not feature in Erik ten Hag’s plans.
Well, one man who seemingly fits that mould is Andreas Pereira. The Brazilian, who spent last season on loan at Flamengo, will not be playing his football at Old Trafford next term.
The claim comes from the usually reliable Fabrizio Romano, who claims that the 26-year-old United player has now reached a ‘full agreement’ with recently promoted Fulham.
Pereira has a three-year contract in place with the London outfit, while the eventual transfer fee will total £13m after add-ons and bonuses. The agreement was reached between the two clubs last week, with Romano giving this one his patented ‘Here we go!’ catchphrase.
Pereira was always going to find minutes hard to come by here in Manchester, despite the fact both Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba were moved on.
Sadly, the Brazilian just hasn’t shown anywhere near the consistency required to make it at the highest level, despite Pereira giving us some glorious moments over the years.
I’ve no doubt that Pereira will become a week-in-week-out starter for Fulham and I genuinely do hope that gives him the opportunity to reach his full potential. His talent has never been in denial.
Credit must go to United, too. They’ve managed to get an excellent price for a player who is no more than a rotational option.
