Andreas Pereira Set To Leave Manchester United Despite Solskjaer Pleas
The Manchester United Manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ‘tried in vain’ to persuade Andreas Pereira to stay at the club, according to reports in Portugal.
According to Esporte Interativo, Pereira has already made up his mind to leave the club after falling out of the regular starters of the team.
The arrival of Bruno Fernandes has turned Pereira to a fringe player once again and he has only managed to played just 62 minutes of football since the league’s restart, failing to even make the bench for United’s final three Premier League games of the season.
Pereira was not even selected by Solskjaer for the dead rubber Europa League game against LASK, playing just 36 minutes as Jesse Lingard was preferred in the No. 10 role.
But despite his reluctance to use Pereira, it seems that he ‘tried in vain to convince the Brazilian to stay at the club’.
According to the report: ‘The player’s manager, Kia Joorabchian, is already negotiating with Portuguese, Spanish and German football teams.’
It has been suggested that he could return to Valencia, where he enjoyed a successful loan spell in 2017/18.
