Man Utd have only been reaping benefits from the addition of Bruno Fernandes since January. The Red Devils finished in the top four in the Premier League, a goal which seemed too distant during the initial days of the campaign.

However, the Portuguese star’s addition and Paul Pogba’s recovery have stunted the progress of Andreas Pereira to an extent, as the star was benched by the club manager more often this year.

As a consequence, Esporte Interativo report that the Brazil international is looking forward to an Old Trafford exit, being unsatisfied with the limited game time with United.

During the first phase of the 2019/20 season, the 24-year-old was a key cog in the midfield of the Red Devils, exhibiting appreciable performances for his side. Regardless, since the Premier League restarted after the break, the Brazilian had only two cameos in the league, while operating for just 26 minutes in the Europa League.

Accordingly, the report claims that the player will be traded prior to the premiere of next season despite Solskjaer’s earnest efforts to persuade the youngster to stay longer at the club. It’s understood that the Brazilian’s representatives are already in contact with Portuguese, Spanish, and German clubs to secure a transfer away as quickly as possible.

Reportedly, Valencia have sparked hints of interest in the talisman, and the negotiations are anticipated to go smoothly if it starts, given the fact that he operated for the La Liga side previously in his career.

Although offloading the star would provide United with a boost in terms of financial power to swoop their primary transfer target Jadon Sancho, the Mancunians have not yet revealed a price tag for the talented midfielder.

With the player being unhappy at Old Trafford, it’s highly unlikely that he would continue his career there, which gives the supporters some degree of certainty in the prospects of United midfield without Andreas Pereira.
