Manchester United Andreas Pereira Joins Lazio
Manchester United Brazilian midfielder Andreas Pereira has joined Serie A side, Lazio, on a season-long loan. The 24-year-old has been with Manchester United since 2014. This will be his third loan move after spells in La Liga with Granada and Valencia.
Manchester United said he is being allowed to leave due to Bruno Fernandes’ arrival in January, having started just once and made six substitute appearances since the Portuguese was signed. Pereira has not been involved in United’s three games so far this season and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said the player “needs to play regularly”.
United boss Ole said: “After we signed Bruno, that position that Andy played in was taken because Bruno came in and had such an impact.” He also said: “We decided this is what was best for Andreas.”
