Manchester United FC Fulham have taken on midfielder Andreas Pereira from Manchester United The news was

made public on Monday. Pereira has agreed to a four-year deal with the option to extend it for a additional year for

an undisclosed amount. Pereira 26, who is 26 years old, stated: "I'm very happy to be here and can't look forward

to the start of this season at Fulham. "I am determined to assist Fulham in any way I can to help them get where

they are. Marco Silva was very important in this. I talked to Marco Silva, and he was a major reason for me to be in this

position." Pereira was last season in his homeland of Brazil as a loan player at Rio de Janeiro giants Flamengo

However, the teams failed to reach an agreement on a permanent contract. Following his move at PSV Eindhoven in

2012, Pereira was a part of the ranks of youth with Old Trafford before making his debut for the first team in 2014.

But he was not able to secure an official first-team spot and was also working on loan with Granada, Valencia

and Lazio. Pereira played just 45 times during the Premier League, just 24 of them as a starter and scored two goals.
