There’s exactly one week left on Andreas Pereira’s loan at Flamengo, and the Brazilian club haven’t decided whether they’ll buy him from Manchester United or not.
The clubs had initially agreed to a €20m buying option, and this year, reached a deal to make the transfer happen for only €10m.
Now Lance writes there’s ‘certainty’ that Flamengo will not pay that much. Speaking to sources close to the process, they heard there’s ‘nothing defined’ yet.
Also writing about the issue, IG points out that the deadline for the agreement already expired. So if the Brazilian club are making the move permanent, they’ll have to start talks with Manchester United from zero.
Pereira continues to perform for Flamengo and has even been doing well in the past few matches. Now he could play two more games for them before the loan expires.
On ESPN Brasil (via Torcedores), journalist Fabio Sormani spoke this week about the price for Pereira. He claims that the Rio de Janeiro club should still get a better price to buy him from Manchester United.
“If they’re going to sign him, Flamengo have to negotiate with the guys there! Half of what they’re asking for: €5m paid, 100% of the player. He’s not worth (€10m). His contract runs until 2023, but he has a market in Europe.”
