Manchester United are on the verge of selling Andreas Pereira to Fulham, ending the midfielder’s 10-year association with the club.

Pereira’s future has been the subject of much speculation this summer. Some reports suggest that he was part of Erik ten Hag’s plans while the player himself said he wanted to stay at Flamengo after his loan spell at the Brazilian club last season.

But acc Fabrizio RomanoFulham have won the race to sign the 26-year-old, with the Championship champions set to pay £10m plus £3m in add-ons for the Brazilian, who will sign a four-year deal with an option for one more season.

The football journalist has also reported that Israeli winger Manor Solomon is also in the west London and will join the Cottagers on a year-long loan from Shakhtar Donetsk.

They will become Marco Silva’s second and third signings of the summer after the arrival of defensive midfielder Joao Palhinha from Sporting Lisbon.

Pereira signed for United in 2012 aged just 16 and made his senior debut two years later, but he never looked like he would establish himself as a regular in the Red Devils first-team, moving to Granada and Valencia on loan .

When he returned he was used more frequently under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but even that didn’t last long. His last appearance for the club was in 2020 before spending the last two seasons on loan at Lazio and Flamengo.

He ended his decade-long United career with 75 appearances, four goals and five assists.

His departure will leave United with even fewer options in midfield following the departures of Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic, although Ten Hag is reportedly close to signing longtime targets Christian Eriksen and Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona.
