Man Utd's Pereira arrives in Italy ahead of Lazio switch

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has arrived in Rome to complete a season-long loan switch to Lazio.

With both club and player open to a move, a deal has been agreed with Lazio for the 2020-21 campaign with only the finishing touches to complete.

It is understood that the deal will include 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.

The midfielder has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford following the arrivals of Bruno Fernandes and Donny van de Beek and has struggled for game time.

The writing was on the wall for Pereira as he wasn't included in either of their matchday squads for the first two league games of the season, or the Carabao Cup win over Luton.

Pereira might not be the only player to leave Old Trafford for Serie A in the coming days, with Chris Smalling hoping to complete a permanent move to Roma following his successful loan spell last season.

Roma had tabled an offer for the centre-back but it fell way below United's £20 million ($26m) asking price. However, Smalling is deemed surplus to requirements at Old Trafford so there is hope on both sides that an agreement can eventually be found.

Diogo Dalot, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Sergio Romero could also be allowed to leave as United work on incomings.

Negotiations are continuing for Porto's Alex Telles as Solskjaer looks to bring in competition for Luke Shaw at left-back, and United still haven't given up on their top target, Jadon Sancho.

However, it is understood United still have not submitted an official bid for Sancho. The two clubs are still apart on theirvaluations, with United not willing to pay the £108m ($139m) Borussia Dortmund want for the winger.
