Deal close! Chelsea win race for United man

Timothy Aiyeku



It has been alleged that West London side Chelsea have won the race to secure the signature of Manchester United out-of-favour star Andrea Pereira ahead of the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.

The West London side and their North London rivals Arsenal were earlier reported to be seeking for the signature of Andrea Pereira but from emerging reports, the race has already been decided.

Also, Andrea Pereira is reported to be leaving the Red Devils in a cut-price deal to be able to push for the move away from the Old Trafford, The Metro says.

The 22-year-old has not had life too good at United as he has continued to struggle under manager Jose Mourinho.

It was the reason why he was sent on loan last season to Spanish side Valencia and with his return, the story remains unchanged.

It could just be time for Andrea Pereira to move away on a permanent basis knowing that his future at the club cannot be granted at the moment with United also ready to let him go.

However, Valencia are reported to be willing to have Andrea Pereira on a permanent move having impressed in the club last season when he had his loan move.
