According to Spanish radio station Cadena Ser Radio Valencia‘s twitter account, the talented Brazilian playmaker will join La Liga outfit Valencia on loan for a year. Pereira, who had a successful loan spell with Granada last year, is again deemed not good enough to play for Manchester United just yet.
Andreas had a fruitful season with Granada last year, where he scored 5 goals and assisted 3. As a result, Valencia have come knocking on the door of Manchester United to wrap up a loan deal for the player.
Moreover, Jose Mourinho feels it would be beneficial for Pereira to play every week – something he wouldn’t be able to do at the Old Trafford outfit.
Mourinho has a number of midfielders at his disposal, and the Portuguese tactician knows that it would be almost impossible for the 21-year-old to break into his team. Notably, players like Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick, and Ander Herrera are finding it hard to get into the starting lineup this season.
With 2 wins in 2 games and 8 goals scored, the 54-year-old boss would be keen not disturb the dynamic of his team that is blowing oppositions away. Pogba and Matic have cemented their place as the first choice midfield partnership, and it would be hard for other midfielders to get in there right now.
