Manchester United will sell Andreas Pereira this summer if a ‘reasonable’ offer arrives, according to reports.
The Red Devils are ready to let eight or nine players leave as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to get rid of the dead wood in the summer. However, finding buyers for these fringe players could be Solskjaer’s biggest challenge yet.
Pereira has struggled to break into the first team during Jose Mourinho’s time in charge at Old Trafford, although his chances have improved under Mourinho’s successor.
The 24-year-old recently made headlines off the pitch, though. after blasting “arrogant” Liverpool rivals Virgil van Djik and James Milner following the Reds’ Premier League trophy lift last week.
The Brazilian, who has won one cap for his country, played 25 games in the Premier League this season, scoring once, supplying three assists, taking 1.5 shots per game and successfully completing 1.3 key passes on average (via WhoScored).
While Pereira has insisted that he has no plans to leave Old Trafford, he admitted he could see himself playing for the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Santos in the future.
Clubs are operating in unprecedented financial circumstances and it is hard to imagine that any of the aforementioned sides will be willing to spend anywhere the £14.4m valuation for a player who has only scored two goals in the entire season so far.
Solskjaer wants to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund, as he believes the England international is the signing he needs to rebuild the Red Devils, which could push Pereira further down the pecking order if Sancho arrives in the summer.
