DONE DEAL: Lazio complete signing of Man Utd midfielder Andreas Pereira

Lazio have completed the signing of Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira.

Pereira has been unveiled as a Lazio player as he completes his season-long loan move.

The 24-year-old Brazil midfielder had fallen further down the pecking order at Old Trafford following the summer arrival of Donny van de Beek.

And Pereira will spend the season in Serie A after joining Lazio initially on loan but with an option to make the move permanent for £24.5million.

Having not been picked by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer during the opening games of the current campaign, Pereira decided to make the move to Italy in the hope of more game time.
