Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is set to leave after ten years at the club.

Pereira joined Manchester United as a 16 year old from PSV in 2012 after impressing at the Manchester United Premier Cup.

Andreas is now set to join Premier League side Fulham for a transfer fee of £10million plus £3million in add-ons, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Andreas will sign a four year contract with Fulham with the option of a fifth year. He is set to undergo his Fulham medical in London on Thursday.

Andreas last played for Manchester United in 2020, with the midfielder spending time on loan at Lazio and Flamengo since then.

His departure will leave United with even less midfield options, following the exits of Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic, although the Red Devils are reportedly close to signing long-time targets Christian Eriksen on a free and Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona.

Andreas made 75 appearances for Man United, scoring 4 goals and providing 5 assists.

Meanwhile, new Man United left-back Tyrell Malacia has revealed he would leave the club and retire from football if he stops playing the game with enjoyment.

Malacia is referred to as the ‘smiling Dutchman’ because he always plays football with a smile on his face.

Asked if playing with a smile on his face is important to him, Tyrell Malacia told Manchester United official website: “Yeah, I think if that stops, if I don’t enjoy the game, then I don’t have to play football anymore because it’s finished.”

Malacia also hailed his dad as his hero growing up and named Brazilian legend Ronaldinho as his footballing hero.

He added: “Growing up I didn’t really have a hero. My biggest hero was my dad always for me. Not because of football but as a person.

“And when I was playing on the streets with my friends I was always looking up to Ronaldinho.”
