ITALIAN CLUB CONTINUE ATTEMPT TO SIGN UNITED STAR

You are here

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has continued to attract interest from Italian Serie A outfit Lazio and the club have also continued to make it clear that they are interested in taking the Brazilian midfielder back to Italy. The Brazil international star was at Lazio last season where he spent the entirety of the campaign on loan at the club and he did well to impress the Rome-based giants.

He has however returned to Old Trafford and it is reported that he is willing to engage himself in talks with the United board in a bid to sort out his future before the start of next season. Pereira joined Lazio last season because there was no space for him in the United team as they were already packed in the midfield area. Before joining the Italian Serie A giants, he had several offers from other clubs but he and United both agreed that Lazio was the club for him and they would offer him a better platform to aid his development.

It quite happened the way they planned it and Pereira was given a lot of opportunities to showcase what he's made of. He impressed during his stay in Rome and the club are now trying to ignite negotiations with the Red Devils in a bid to bring him back t the Serie A ahead of the season kicking off later in August this year.

Although Olé Gunnar Solksjær is a bit of a fan of the 26-year-old, the Norwegian manager is said to be willing to listen to offers for him. United will reportedly be willing to allow the midfielder to leave this summer but on a permanent deal this time around. It is believed that if the Old Trafford club can get a fee of around £20 million for Pereira, they will be more than willing to seal the move instantly.
