Manchester United contacted by Malaga over Andreas Pereira move – report

by Tanveer Arayan

Malaga have contacted Manchester United about the possibility of signing Andreas Pereira, according to Don Balon.

Malaga boss Javi Gracia is reportedly ready to build his team around Pereira having made him a top target.

The likes of Marcus Rashford and Timothy Fosu-Mensah have flourished under Louis van Gaal this season but Pereira has found chances harder to come by.

The Brazilian reportedly wanted a loan move away from Old Trafford in the winter transfer market but he was denied his wish by van Gaal amid an injury crisis at the club.

Pereira is a huge talent and one that is too good to play in the U21s but there is a question mark over his attitude.

Perhaps a loan move would be better for the youngster as United may come to regret their decision if they do let Pereira go. Paul Pogba left Old Trafford for Juventus for free in 2012 and he is now considered to be one of the best midfielders in the world.
