According to AS, Manchester United winger Andreas Pereira could make his loan spell at Valencia permanent this summer. The La Liga side held talks with agent Kia Joorabchian two weeks ago with a view to brokering a deal for the 22-year-old to stay at Valencia for the long term.
United, however, are still keen to keep Pereira, despite affording him little to no playing time in his six years at Old Trafford. The Red Devils signed the Brazilian u23 international from Dutch Eredivisie outfit PSV Eindhoven in 2012 and he’s gone on to make only 13 appearances in all competitions.
Pereira spent last season out on loan with Granada and sought another year away from Manchester as he wasn’t guaranteed regular playing time under manager Jose Mourinho. As a result, Valencia stand a chance of agreeing terms with the player but may need to work on convincing United to part company with the £10k-per-week prospect.
He’s made 25 appearances in all competitions for Los Che this season, scoring and creating six goals. First-team football will do wonders for his development, and given he’s getting more playing time away from Manchester, Pereira could ask the club for a permanent transfer.
He defied Mourinho to join Valencia on loan this season so it’s plausible he could force a move.
