On-loan Man United star’s father all-but confirms future plans

 

The father of on-loan Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has, on Monday, hinted at his son’s plans beyond next summer.

Flamengo stint

Brazilian talent Pereira is of course currently in the midst of a 2nd successive temporary spell away from Old Trafford.

After struggling to nail down a starting berth in Italy with Lazio last season, the 25-year-old returned to base this past summer, before being swiftly shipped off once more.

Pereira secured a return to his home country, with Brasileiro giants Flamengo.

And to say that he has since enjoyed an upturn in fortunes in Rio de Janeiro would be putting it lightly.

The once so highly-regarded midfield talent has gone on to establish himself as an integral figure in Flamengo’s ranks in the middle of the park, racking up three goals and an assist across 13 league appearances thus far (11 starts).

‘Difficult…’

In turn, it should come as little surprise to hear of murmurs beginning to spread regarding a potentially permanent departure from Manchester for Pereira.

With the likes of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Fred, Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic above him in the midfield pecking order in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad, it is viewed as likely that the Red Devils would sanction a sale, in the event of a sufficient offer arriving next summer.

And as outlined above, on Monday, Pereira’s father has opened up on the possibility of exactly that.

Speaking in an interview with Esporte Espetacular, Marcos Pereira was first keen to highlight his son’s happiness with Flamengo, before confirming that, as things stand, a return to Europe looks ‘difficult’:

‘I think that today is the best moment in his career, not only on the field, but in the locker room, in the club.’

‘In today’s conditions, I think it’s difficult for him to return to Europe, in case Flamengo wants to keep him.’
