Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is reportedly determined to leave the club this summer despite being asked to reconsider by his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Pereira, 24, has seen his playing time dramatically reduced since professional football resumed back in June having only featured as a substitute in three games, one of which was a dead-rubber second leg round of 16 tie against Austrian side LASK.
According to Esporte Interativo the attacking midfielder is now set to leave the club he has been with since 2017 as he seeks a summer move.
The Brazilian outlet claim that despite manager Solskjaer’s best efforts to persuade the creative midfielder to reconsider his future amid reassurances a long-term plan for him, the 24-year-old has decided against remaining at United.
It is understood that Pereira’s agent Kia Joorabchian is already working on a potential summer move for his client having recently opened talks with a host of top European sides including La Liga outfit Valencia.
It remains unclear at this stage how serious Pereira’s desire to leave Old Trafford is, but with the likes of Bruno Fernandes and even more recently Jesse Lingard seemingly well ahead of him in the United pecking order, perhaps a new challenge would be the best option for the young South American.
