Andreas Pereira Next In Line For Loan Move
The Daily Mail report that Manchester United youngster Andreas Pereira is preparing for a loan move to the Spanish La Liga.
Granada are believed to be keen on signing the 20-year-old Brazilian midfielder for the season, as Jose Mourinho continues trimming down his squad for the upcoming campaign.
Mourinho has already sent out Tyler Blackett, Borthwick-Jackson, and James Wilson this week. Pereira will become the 15th player to exit the club since Mourinho’s arrival.
Andreas Pereira was promoted to the first-team squad under the management of Louis Van Gaal, but only made a total of 11 appearances for the senior side.
Mourinho used Pereira during his pre-season tour in China, and was even believed to be impressed by the youngster’s performance.
However, the Special One has already told Pereira that it would benefit him to leave the Manchester United squad this summer, as his chances will not be abundant.
Pereira plays in midfield, a position which is already saturated with high-profile players. Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were brought in this season to tighten up the United midfield, meaning that Pereira will be all but redundant.
All that remains at the moment is for Mourinho to give the go-ahead for the move.
Granada just managed to clinch a first tier spot last season, and will be hoping that the addition of Pereira will lighten up their midfield with his creative and technical abilities.
The departure of Andreas will not be the last transfer dealing of this summer for Manchester United, as Jose Mourinho continues to reshape his squad for the 2016/17 season.
Reports claim that Mourinho is still looking for one more defensive signing this summer, with Jose Fonte heading his list of targets.
The Red Devils have already won their first two Premier League matches of the season, with Zlatan Ibrahimović being the stand-out man, scoring three goals in four games.
