Manchester United are reportedly open to letting out-of-favour midfielder Andreas Pereira leave on loan in the final week of the transfer window.
Pereira is yet to feature under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season and a return to challenging for a place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first-team appears unattainable after the arrival of Donny van de Beek.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano revealed on Sunday afternoon that Lazio had began talks with United over the transfer of the 24-year-old Brazilian.
And Romano’s latest update notes that the Serie A club has made a loan offer with an option to buy for Pereira.
Romano confirms that United would be open to loaning Pereira out, but there is still no agreement between the two clubs over how his salary would be split in a temporary deal.
Pereira is one of several surplus players United should be looking to move on before the October 5 transfer deadline.
The disappointing lack of exits as well as arrivals have ignited deep frustration within the United fanbase in recent weeks and it seems obvious that the club are struggling to find buyers for some of their excess stars.
But discussions concerning Pereira are promising and a loan-to-buy move to Lazio could suit all parties with the United academy graduate needing a fresh challenge to kick-start his career.
