Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is set to join Fulham for an initial fee of around £9m, according to various reports this evening.

The attacking midfielder, a long-term Fulham target who was previously wanted by Slavisa Jokanovic, is set to sign a three-year contract at Craven Cottage – with the Premier League new boys holding an option to extend that deal by a further twelve months. Vene Casagrande, the journalist who broke the story of Fulham’s interest in Rodrigo Muniz last summer, says that the fee for Pereira, who has spent the season on loan at Flamengo, could rise to £12m depending on add-ons.

Pereira, who has spent eight years at Old Trafford, was reportedly unconvinced about making the move to west London but is now eager to play under Marco Silva in the Premier League.
