Corresponding extraAndreas Pereira’s representatives have obtained more information about Crystal Palace after an initial request.
What’s the matter?
Well, it was said that Fulham had accepted an offer from Manchester United for the 26-year-old.
However, the deal cannot go ahead before Thursday as Flamengo have an option to buy the Brazil international until that date.
Despite this, Crystal Palace is still snooping around and Pereira’s agents are now said to be “getting information” on the south Londoners – they appear tempted to send their client to Selhurst Park.
John Textor – a shareholder in Brazilian giant Botafogo – is also a board member at Crystal Palace, so the South American connections could have something to do with it.
However, Pereira spent last season on loan at Flamengo extra believe he is already considering a return to England and do not believe the Serie A side will activate their option to buy.
As such, it appears Crystal Palace or Fulham will be his new home, with the latter currently more likely to believe Manchester United have accepted an offer.
Andreas Pereira could be good for Crystal Palace
When we reported on Crystal Palace’s initial request, we detailed that Patrick Vieira doesn’t need another midfielder – especially with Cheick Doucoure on his way from RC Lens.
The Frenchman already has Eberechi Eze, Will Hughes, Jeffrey Schlupp, Luka Milivojevic, Cheikhou Kouyate, Jairo Riedewald and James McArthur to choose from in a rather bloated midfield section.
However, if Pereira signs for Crystal Palace he could be a decent addition – at the right price.
The Brazilian brings Premier League experience with him 45 Appearances in England’s top flight under his belt with his prime still ahead of him at 26.
We can’t see him getting much playing time given the competition in midfield but if Vieira signs him then there is clearly a plan for Pereira at Selhurst Park.
Keep an eye on this saga as more details should be revealed starting Thursday.
