Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is in London to complete his move to Fulham, according to ESPN.

The 26 year old Brazilian has spent the past year on loan at Brazilian club Flamengo, but is set to return to the Premier League with newly promoted Fulham.

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.

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

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

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

Meanwhile, new Manchester United left-back Tyrell Malacia has revealed he admired Manchester United legend Patrice Evra over the years while growing up.

Malacia also revealed he wants to surpass the achievements of Patrice Evra at Manchester United.

Malacia completed his €15million transfer to Manchester United from Dutch club Feyenoord on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old became the first signing of the Erik ten Hag era on Tuesday, signing a four-year deal with the option of a further 12 months.

Asked if there was any Manchester United player he admired while growing up, Malacia told Manchester United’s official website: “Yes, Patrice Evra. I love his style. Everything is fast, energetic.”

Asked if he was inspired by Evra’s career, he added: “Yeah of course. I want to do even better. I know it’s going to be difficult, but I set the bar high for myself. It’s what I want.”
