Following claims from Brazil saying Fulham have reached a deal with Manchester United for Andreas Pereira, there’s now big expectation about the player’s response.

When reporting the agreement, local outlets made it clear the Cottagers are still waiting for the midfielder’s answer, and that has a lot to do with his future at Flamengo.

The Rio de Janeiro side have Pereira on loan for a few more days, and have him in the squad to face Tolima on Wednesday evening, as the 26-year-old is showing good form at the club.

Covering the news about Fulham’s agreement with Manchester United, Globo Esporte today highlights that the player would still like to stay at Flamengo.

The Brazilian club had a deal to buy him from the Red Devils for €10m, but have gone quiet since that agreement was reached. That’s why Andreas’ staff are not happy with Flamengo officials.

Still, the player is said to be a ‘lone voice’ among his entourage. It’s said he has a deal to sign for Flamengo for five years and keeps ‘the desire’ of staying.

Goal Brasil writes that Andreas likes the Brazilian club so much that he accepted to earn half of what he used to make at Manchester United, and Fulham now try to convince him of moving to London.

Regardless of the player’s wish, Flamengo must make their move, and perhaps match the Cottagers’ bid to stand a chance in the race.
