The president of Valencia Football Club Mateu Alemany has revealed that Manchester United have the option of recalling Andreas Pereira from his loan stint in January. The 21-year-old joined the Spanish club on a temporary basis prior to the Spanish transfer deadline on September 1.
In a report covered by The Star, Alemany has confirmed that United can recall the Brazilian midfielder in the New Year on a few conditions, but they will have to pay a suitable compensation to the Mestalla outfit.
“I would not have made comments, but as the other club has done, I say that it is true that there is the option to recall him in conditions that I will keep confidential, but there is a compensation for Valencia.” he said.
Earlier in the summer, Pereira had expressed his desire to fight for a position under Jose Mourinho after enjoying a good season with Granada, where he notched five goals in 37 appearances.
Barring his gametime in pre-season, the midfielder was ignored for the opening matches of the Premier League campaign, and he opted to pursue a loan move to Valencia earlier this month.
Mourinho has not been entirely pleased by the decision, and there is every possibility that the manager could recall Pereira, who adapted to the central midfield role at Granada.
Pereira has notched four La Liga appearances for Valencia this term.
