Manchester United have confirmed that Belgium-born Brazilian international midfielder Andreas Pereira has joined Italian Serie A giants Lazio on a season-long loan deal.

The confirmation of his loan transfer to Lazio came on Friday night.

Andreas Pereira has seen little match action since the arrival of Portuguese international Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon FC of Portugal.

Bruno Fernandes joined the Red Devils in January and he went on to win the club’s Player of the Year despite spending half of the season at Old Trafford.

Andreas Pereira is expected to make his debut for Lazio when they take on fellow Serie A title rivals Inter Milan at home.

It would be the third loan spell for Andreas Pereira after previous loan deals at Granada and Valencia.

Pereira joined the Manchester United Academy in 2011 from Dutch Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven.

He was a regular in the Manchester United XI during the last matches of Jose Mourinho as the Red Devils manager in 2018.

Manchester United are likely to let more players leave especially the ones on the fringes of the first team.

Welsh winger Daniel James could also leave Manchester United with Aston Villa and Leeds United interested in a loan deal for him.
