Pereira closes on Fulham switch
Manchester United look set to be handed a much-needed boost to their summer transfer budget after Fulham reportedly agreed a deal to sign Andreas Pereira.
The 26-year-old has spent the past two seasons out on loan, most recently with Brazilian giants Flamengo, who had been set to sign Pereira permanently before a deal fell through earlier in the window. Now Fulham have stepped up to bring the midfielder in, as Marco Silva looks to add Premier League experience to his newly-promoted team.
As first reported by UOL, the Cottagers will stump up an initial £8.6 million to sign Pereira, who has one year remaining on his contract at Old Trafford. Up to £2.6m will then be paid in add-ons
