Kia driving Flamengo move for Man Utd midfielder Pereira

Agent Kia Joorabchian is driving Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira's move to Flamengo.

Globoesporte says after persuasive talks with Joorabchian he is open to the move.

Joorabchian is the man negotiating directly with Manchester United bosses and he has been integral in convincing Pereira that it would be a positive step to move to the Brazilian top-flight.

Pereira has already hinted that he would be open to a move, telling manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he is ready to play regularly and would go in search of those minutes if they weren't on offer.

"I'm ready to play, I'm not a boy anymore. I'm a man ready to take responsibility," he told TNT Sports. "I'm sure that with playing time and continuity as a starter in my position, I can show what I've done on base, I can score more goals and give assists.

"A player of my position needs the confidence to play and the freedom to be bold on the field."

As for his United future, Pereira added: "In Manchester or elsewhere, the time has come to play, to have at least an hour per game on the field, to have the confidence to play.

“I want to be happy, to feel important."
