Real Betis open talks with Manchester United’s Andreas Pereira: report

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United are reportedly set to have a fight on their hands with Real Betis interested in signing Andreas Pereira.

The youngster spent last season on loan at Valencia where he impressed and returned to Old Trafford hoping for more minutes.

Pereira has previously discussed his desire to play for United but appears to want the promise of first team action before committing.

It’s been said that Jose Mourinho is unhappy with the midfielder after he seemingly forced a move to Spain when the manager wanted to keep him at the club.

Perhaps the Portuguese boss won’t be able to keep him at the club once more with the La Liga side reportedly interested in him.

According to Football Espana, the Mirror report that Real Betis are negotiating with the Red Devils for Andreas in the hopes of completing a transfer.

Mourinho could certainly do with the Belgian next season but he’s correct in his decision to not force the player into the starting XI.

Andreas Pereira would definitely get minutes but there’s no guarantee he’d be a regular or key player in the squad as Nemanja Magic and Paul Pogba are the main stars.

What he would offer is an alternative to the Frenchman as United have shown they this campaign that they’re in desperate need of a back up.
