Man United fans aren’t delighted with Pereira’s likely loan exit

Manchester United haven’t exactly enjoyed the most productive of transfer windows. Though the early capture of Fred proved exciting, the rather understated additions of Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant have barely excited the Old Trafford faithful, nor spread fear amongst the Etihad ranks.

Indeed, with the Red Devils so far off the pace last term, it’s fair to say many people were expecting more from a club who have spent the last few years doing their best to bulldoze everyone when it comes to buying top players.

The 22-year-old is a popular figure amongst fans, though the signing of Grant looks to have pushed him down the pecking order.

Mourinho confirmed the news during the club’s press conference prior to their International Champions Cup friendly and, it’s fair to say, it prompted quite the reaction online.
