Fabrizio Romano: Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira will undergo medical today to complete Fulham transfer
According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano on Twitter, Andreas Pereira will undergo medical tests today to complete his transfer move to Fulham. The Manchester United midfielder is expected to ply his trade with the newly-promoted Premier League side beyond this summer.
Pereira is currently in London to undergo medical procedures and officially become a Fulham player shortly. After completion, he will sign a contract for four years which also includes an option to extend the deal until 2027. Paperworks are already ready to be completed with Man United at this point.
Both clubs have already reached an agreement over the transfer fees involved regarding the Brazilian international’s switch. The Cottagers will pay £10million up front plus another £3million in bonuses if certain objectives are met moving forward.
Great business from Man Utd!
One of the heavy criticisms that have been put forward by the supporters has been our inability to get the best out of player sales. Fortunately, the Red Devils seem to have finally made a good piece of business in that regard, with the fans acknowledging it as well.
In fact, the amount we are set to receive would be even more impressive considering how Pereira has just 12 months left in his current contract with us. In any case, this move could prove to be of real help for all the parties involved under the current circumstances.
The 26-year-old himself played a major role in doing so as he was excellent for Flamengo when he was on loan with them in the previous campaign. Perhaps continuing that form in the English top-flight would greatly help him convince Tite that he can do the same in the top competitions as well.
After all, with the 2022 Qatar World Cup drawing close, the move to Marco Silva’s side could give Pereira the right surroundings to make his case. It would be a stern task indeed, but not impossible, looking at how the midfielder has performed over the past year or so.

We would probably be delighted to be boosted by the South American’s sale as it would add to our transfer budget for this summer. After all, we are pursuing the likes of Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong, Antony and Lisandro Martinez of Ajax currently, and this influx of cash could give them extra leeway in our attempt to sign them.
