Valencia have reached an agreement with Manchester United for the services of Andreas Pereira.
The Red Devils’ youngster is set to become a Valencia player for a year, as Jose Mourinho has given the green light to the Spanish club to take the midfielder away on loan.
The player, who had a good individual campaign on loan for relegated side Granada last season, is heading back to the La Liga again.
Earlier, Jose Mourinho had hinted that Andreas Pereira might get to stay at Old Trafford and contribute to the team. But he now seems to have decided that he doesn’t need the services of the Brazilian playmaker for this season.
The Portuguese tactician feels that the player would develop much better on loan, where he will get to play more frequently than at Manchester United.

To clarify on Pereira: Valencia have confirmed it (per @carrusel). Loan deal. Could be good for everyone.

Pereira was one of the most creative youngsters in La Liga last season, as he bagged 5 goals and 3 assists. Impressed with the quality of the 21-year-old, Valencia have decided to sign the midfielder on loan, and they will look to use the creativity of the Brazilian to help them mount a top 4 challenge.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are still looking to sign a player in the last few days of the transfer window, which closes on 31st August. Thomas Lemar and Ivan Perisic are the two attackers that are currently being linked with a move to Old Trafford.
