Confirmed: Brazilian midfielder will play for Manchester United

By | February 3, 2019

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Andreas Pereira will not be leaving Old Trafford before the end of the transfer window.

The Brazilian starlet’s Manchester United future appeared to be uncertain after being linked with moves to Arsenal, West Ham United and Everton.

Andreas Pereira has started just one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s eight games in charge and was not included in the matchday squad for the 3-1 victory over Arsenal, but the 23-year-old is still part of the Red Devils long-term plans.

“I can’t see him going out on loan,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told reporters. “Andreas has done fantastic in training ever since I’ve come back. I’ve kept in touch with Warren [Joyce], who had him in the reserves.

“I’ve known about Andreas from before, and he’s a player that you could see playing quite a few games for us towards the end of the season.”

The Brazil international has appeared for a total of 17 minutes in the Premier League under the Norwegian boss and made his only start in the FA Cup third-round win against Reading.
