Andreas Pereira Set To Go Out On Loan Next Season

Manchester United are considering allowing Andreas Pereira out on loan for the whole of next season in order to secure his long-term future.

The 23-year-old midfielder had his contract extended by the Red Devils last week after triggering a 12-month renewal option.

It is understood Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants him to sign a new four-year deal within the coming months.

And United will then allow him to go out on loan for the next campaign to gain experience, as long as he puts pen-to-paper on an extension.

It is thought Leicester are eyeing Pereira, with Brendan Rodgers a long-term admirer of the Brazilian ace.

A number of Premier League sides are also interested, along with clubs across Europe including Spain and Italy.

An Old Trafford source said: “The club are prepared to let him leave for a non-rival if it helps persuade him to stay long-term.

“Nobody wants him to go as he is well liked here and is extremely talented. We are confident he can make it here.

“We know he needs more regular starts though to take his game to the next level. He is highly valued.

“Ole is a fan of his but will struggle to find a proper role for him next season as things push on at the club.”

Pereira has slowly broken his way into the Manchester United first-team this season, especially under Solskjaer,  and showed off his talent when he started in the incredible 3-1 win over PSG.

He has had loan spells with Valencia and Granada in the past, but is happy and wants to stay in the Premier League.

It is understood United value him at around £15m, and are prepared to cash in rather than let things drag on until next January.
