Andreas completes loan move away from United

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has completed a season-long loan move to Lazio, after passing his medical in Rome.

The 24-year-old, who joined United's Academy from PSV Eindhoven in 2011, has been allowed to leave Old Trafford following the arrival of Bruno Fernandes in January.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained the capture of the Portugal international, our 2019/20 Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year, has restricted the first-team opportunities for Andreas.

When we asked the boss if it was a good move for the Brazilian, he told us: “Yes, definitely. They’re a big club, Lazio. Andreas needs to play regularly.

“He started last season really well and played loads of games. You could see the confidence growing and see him developing but, after we signed Bruno, that position that Andy played in was taken because Bruno came in and had such an impact. We decided this is what was best for Andreas.”

Andreas will hope to make his debut in the weekend Serie A clash with Internazionale and push for a regular place in Simone Inzaghi's side at the Stadio Olimpico.

This is his third loan move, after stints in Spain with Granada and Valencia.

The new season is here. Our 2020/21 home, away and third kits are available now from United Direct.
