Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is closing in on a transfer to Fulham as details emerged about when his medical will take place.
There’s already been a big clear out at Old Trafford this summer since over half a dozen United players have already left the club, but fans are becoming disgruntled at the lack of incoming transfer activity.
Of course, fans were happy to welcome Erik ten Hag’s first signing to the club this week, as Tyrell Malacia joined from Feyenoord.
Now, another departure is upon us after United reached an agreement with newly-promoted Premier League side Fulham over the sale of Andreas Pereira.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the 26-year-old will undergo his medical in London tomorrow (Thursday) ahead of a move.

The Brazil international spent last season on loan at Flamengo but they were unable to match United’s valuation of the player, despite Pereira making it clear he wanted to stay at the club.
The Athletic claimed earlier this week that Fulham have already had a bid accepted for the midfielder, although the offer agreed is higher, if you believe Fabrizio Romano’s account of the situation.
Romano says Pereira will sign for Fulham until 2026, with the option for a further season. In turn, United will pocket £10 million plus £3m in add-ons.
That’s a good deal for a player must fans will accept is surplus to requirements. If you add up the figures, United will get the money back for Pereira that it took us to sign Malacia!
