Manchester United is looking forward to accepting a bid of £11 million from the newly promoted side. Pereira was on loan at Flamengo, who seemed to be interested in signing him but their bid was less than £10m which was initially Manchester United’s asking price.
Pereira will find it hard to get into Erik Ten Hag‘s team, and it is left for him to decide whether he wants to fight for his place or move to the London side. The club needs to sell to get funds in order to buy as the new manager looks to reshape his squad.
Currently, he is still on loan with Flamengo, who are still having their season. The Brazilian contract ends on June 30th.
Flamengo manager wants to have him in the squad next season. He believes Pereira can grow into a big player because of his exceptional talent, but admits the player is in the hands of the club and Pereira also wants to stay at the Brazilian club
Pereira has been having an impressive season at the club, scoring seven goals and adding three assists to his name. Another suitor is in to beat Fulham to a deal.
Pereira was considered a good number 10 under Ole Gunnar, but he failed to make an impact after the club signed Bruno Fernandez.
A move to Fulham may be the beginning of a good thing in his career, because at Fulham he will surely get a starting place.
Fulham manager Marco Silva wants Pereira to replicate what he did at Granada, where he saved the Spanish side from Relegation. The manager sees him as the kind of player capable of bringing balance into the midfield.
His time at Manchester United is coming to an end after spending 10 years at the club. Next season might be an upgrade in his career, if he manages to stay consistent.
