Andreas Pereira leaves Man Utd for season-long Lazio loan
Pereira was not included in either of the matchday squads for United’s first two league games of the season and even missed out on a place in the squad for the League Cup clash against Luton.
With both club and player open to a move, a deal has been agreed with Lazio for the 2020-21 campaign.
It is understood that the deal includes an option to buy at the end of the season and the Italian club will pay the entirety of Pereira’s wages during his spell at the club.
Pereira’s departure could spark a mini exodus at Old Trafford before the transfer window comes to a close next week. Chris Smalling is hoping to make a permanent move to Roma, having impressed during his loan spell with the Italian side.
Roma had made an offer for the centre-back but it fell way below the £20 million ($26m) United are hoping to recoup for the defender. However, there is hope an agreement can be reached to allow Smalling to leave as he is deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.
The club are also open to offers for Diogo Dalot, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Sergio Romero as they continue to work on incomings before Monday’s deadline.
Negotiations are continuing with Porto left-back Alex Telles as Solskjaer looks to bring in competition to push Luke Shaw, while the club still haven’t given up on number one transfer target Jadon Sancho.
It is understood United have yet to submit an official bid for Sancho at any point, however. The sticking point in the deal remains a difference in valuation, with United not willing to pay the £108m ($139m) Dortmund want for the winger.
