  • Pereira becomes the latest player to leave Manchester United

Fulham have announced that they have completed the signing of Andreas Pereira from Manchester United on a four-year contract for a fee that could rise to £10m. Pereira made 75 first-team appearances for United, who have loaned him out to Granada, Valencia, Lazio and Flamengo, but has left in search of more regular action.

“I want to help Fulham as much as I can to be where they belong,” Pereira, who has the option of extending his contract by a further 12 months, told the club website. “(Manager) Marco Silva was very important for this. I spoke a lot with him, and he was a key factor in me being here.”

Pereira joined United from PSV Eindhoven in 2012 but failed to establish himself as a regular at Old Trafford, spending much of the last decade on loan at Granada, Valencia, Lazio, and most recently, Flamengo. He made 29 appearances for the Brazilian outfit last season, scoring three times.

Pereira becomes the latest player to leave United following the departures of Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic and Jesse Lingard as new manager Erik ten Hag continues to rebuild the squad. Fulham, who won the Championship last season, open their top-flight campaign at home to Liverpool on Aug. 6.
