Agent reveals Man Utd midfielder Pereira happily settled at Lazio

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is happy at Lazio.

That's according to members of his management team.

A member of Pereira's entourage insists he is loving life in Italy and does not want to leave Lazio anytime soon.

“He is happy in Rome," Matheus Diniz said during an interview with Het Belang van Limburg.

“Andreas likes the Italian culture, which is closer to the Brazilian than the English.

“He feels good in Rome. Lives there with his wife and daughter. The supporters like him, only he wants to play more.

“Until now he has mainly been a substitute, but he always does well. He started in the playing XI against Torino and scored immediately."

Diniz has even suggested that Pereira could join Lazio on a full-time basis at the end of the season.

“I don't do Pereira's transfer business – I do marketing – but my feeling is that both club and player want to get on with each other," he added.

“There is another clause, which says that Lazio has a first option if another club makes a bid.

“So, I certainly don't rule out that he will play for Lazio next season.

“Players may also leave, and Andreas is also very well integrated into the group. He is good friends with Lucas, whom he knew from England, Correa and Caicedo."
