Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ‘tried in vain’ to persuade Andreas Pereira to stay at Old Trafford this summer, according to reports.
Recent reports revealed that Old Trafford is set for a huge summer clear out as at least nine players are considered surplus to requirements.
The 24-year-old struggled during Jose Mourinho’s time in charge at Old Trafford and his chances haven’t improved under Solskjaer, as he has only played 62 minutes of football following the Premier League restart.
The Brazilian, who has won one cap for his country, seems to be below the standards that the Red Devils will need to challenge for trophies next season. From 25 games in the Premier League last term, the midfielder only managed to find the back of the net once.
Many United fans on social media were delighted by this “amazing” transfer update, with one fan dismissing Pereira as “deadwood”.

Ship him to Real or Barca for an 120 Mill then cop Sancho. Job done
