Manchester United are close to selling Andreas Pereira to Fulham, bringing the midfielder’s 10-year association with the club to an end.

Pereira’s future has been the subject of much speculation this summer, with some reports suggesting that he was part of Erik ten Hag’s plans, while the player himself saying that he wanted to stay at Flamengo after his loan spell at the Brazilian club last season.

But according to Fabrizio Romano, Fulham have won the race to sign the 26-year-old, with the Championship champions set to pay £10million plus £3m in add ons for the Brazilian who will sign on a four-year deal with the option for a further season.

The football journalist has also reported that Israeli winger Manor Solomon is also in West London and will join the Cottagers on a one-year loan from Shakhtar Donetsk.

They will become Marco Silva’s side’s second and third signings of the summer following the arrival of defensive midfielder Joao Palhinha from Sporting Lisbon.

Pereira signed for United back in 2012 when he was just 16, making his senior debut two years later, but he never looked like establishing himself as a regular in the Red Devils’ first team, heading out on loan to Granada and Valencia.

When he returned, he was used more frequently under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but even that didn’t last long, with his last appearance for the club coming in 2020, before spending the last two seasons on loan at Lazio and Flamengo.

He ends his decade long United career on 75 appearances, four goals and five assists.

His departure will leave United with even less midfield options, following the exits of Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic, although Ten Hag is reportedly close to signing long-time targets Christian Eriksen on a free and Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona.
