Andreas Pereira

Andreas Pereira has been a flop at Manchester United but that is not a concern to two of the London clubs, Chelsea and Arsenal as they battle to have his signature in the coming winter transfer window.

Andreas Pereira will be out of contract with the Red Devils at the end of the season and there are no indications that he would be kept at the club any longer if the right offers are made for him.

Although, the Old Trafford side have the right to trigger a one-year extension for the player to remain at the club but it is believed that manager Jose Mourinho is ready to part ways with the Brazilian midfielder.

Andreas Pereira came to the Premier League with lots of prospects and hype but only little was seen of him as he seems to be struggling with the pattern of play at the Old Trafford.

However, both Chelsea and Arsenal; are believed to be in need of a midfielder and are making efforts to have him switch to London.

Suggestions are that Andreas Pereira will favour a move to the North London club as he cannot be assured of a starting role and regular time at the West London club.
