Brazilian side Flamengo played last night their first game following the loss in the Copa Libertadores final, and Andreas Pereira, who was guilty of the goal conceded in extra time, had the chance to play at the Maracanã Stadium again.

The Manchester United loanee had already spoken to a few fans before the game, where they showed him their support, and he claimed he’ll stay at the club until they finally win the continental title.

Now Terra writes about Pereira’s performance against Ceará and reports that he had mixed reactions from Flamengo’s fanbase. Some booed him when he first touched the ball, and others backed the 24-year-old.

Regarding the chances of his stay at Flamengo, columnist Silvio Barsetti points out how unlikely it is that the midfielder can convince the club to pay the fee agreed with Manchester United.

He says that since Pereira’s loan expires in June, he’ll only have the chance to play the State Championship, which has become irrelevant in the past few years. So for him to have convincing performances, he’ll have to ‘make it rain’ in those games, basically meaning creating miracles.

Barsetti says the price to sign Pereira from Manchester United is of around €15m, although other reports form Brazil already claimed it’s actually €20m.

Either way, Flamengo are expected to try to reduce that price, which might be what that €15m is referring to.
