The Man Utd playmaker saw his playing time reduced after the arrival of Bruno Fernandes and went on loan to Serie A.
Andreas Pereira is preparing to leave Manchester United on a permanent deal this summer, with the midfielder assessing his options after a year away on loan.
The Brazilian spent the 2020/21 season on loan with Lazio, but MEN Sport understands the Serie A club are reluctant to keep Pereira on a permanent basis because of the cost.
He could be loaned out again for next season, but it’s understood that Pereira would like a clean break from United, with his playing time likely to be very limited if he does remain at Old Trafford.
Pereira only managed one goal and four assists in 33 appearances in all competitions for Lazio. And the Rome-based club are unlikely to exercise the option, including in the loan deal, to buy the player for €27 million.
It’s understood there is interest from clubs in Spain and Italy this summer, with Pereira’s United contract expiring in two years.
He told Italian reporters last month that he would be receptive to a longer stay at Lazio.
