According to Goal Raisa SimplicioCrystal Palace have been in touch with Manchester United over a deal for Andreas Pereira.
What’s the matter?
Well, after a loan spell at Flamengo, the 26-year-old could now leave Old Trafford permanently.
Pereira made 25 Appearances for the Brazilian giants in all competitions last season and his efforts seem to have caught the eye of both Patrick Vieira and Marco Silva.
Simplicio adds that Fulham are also interested and have in fact made an offer worth £9million plus £2million for the Brazil international which Manchester United have accepted.
However, all parties will have to wait for Flamengo, who has an option to buy Pereira until Thursday as part of the terms of his loan deal with the Red Devils.
In our view, this gives the south Londoners a little time to consider offering more than what Fulham have put on the table, although it all depends on what Flamengo do.
Overall, Pereira did 45 Premier League appearances for Manchester United, although he has struggled to settle on loan spells with Granada, Valencia and Lazio.
Hopefully this is the summer when he finds a new home to get going and show off his skills.
Crystal Palace should avoid the Manchester United underdog
In our view, Patrick Vieira doesn’t need Pereira despite his obvious ability.
The Eagles are already inking a deal with RC Lens maestro Cheick Doucoure and with Eberechi Eze now fully fit another midfielder is far from a priority.
Admittedly, Conor Gallagher has returned to Chelsea, although Vieira still has the likes of James McArthur, Cheikhou Kouyate, Jeffrey Schlupp, Will Hughes, Luka Milivojevic, Jairo Riedewald and Eze to choose from.
In our view, once a deal is finalized for Doucoure, a new right-back should be the priority rather than a move for Pereira.
Definitely keep an eye on this situation as things could get interesting if Flamengo decide against making Pereira permanent.
