Fulham sign Man Utd midfielder Pereira in deal worth £10m

Fulham have completed the signing of Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira for a fee understood to be worth £10m.

United have retained a 20 per cent sell-on fee in the deal, Sky Sports News understands, with Fulham paying £8m up front and a further £2m in add-ons.

The Brazilian midfielder has spent the last 11 years at Old Trafford, coming through the youth academy as a teenager. Pereira made 75 appearances for United in total, scoring four times.

The 26-year-old spent last season on loan at Brazilian side Flamengo, scoring eight goals in 31 appearances. His last United appearance came at the end of the 2019/20 season, with the midfielder spending the following campaign at Serie A Lazio.

Pereira is Fulham's second signing since their promotion back to the Premier League last season, with fellow midfielder Joao Palhinha joining from Sporting Lisbon on an undisclosed fee.
