Andreas Pereira couldn’t find regular minutes at Manchester United following the arrival of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting in January.

The 24-year-old, in search of regular football, left the Red Devils to join Lazio on a loan deal in the final week of the summer window.

La Lazio Siamo Noi is a website focusing solely on the Serie A side and they have a report on the midfielder, focusing on what went on behind the scenes before he arrived in Rome.

It’s claimed the Belgium-born Brazil international was ‘immediately fascinated’ by Lazio and he didn’t hesitate to say “yes” to Simone Inzaghi’s side, as soon as he received an offer from them.

In addition to this, the United player had already started studying the Italian club’s best players over the past 25 years, even before signing for them.

Lazio face Udinese on Sunday and the weekend league tie could provide Pereira an opportunity to start again.
