​Lazio expect deal for Man Utd midfielder Pereira this week

Lazio are expected to wrap up the loan signing of Andreas Pereira in the coming days.

The attacking midfielder is down the pecking order at Manchester United, and is being allowed to leave.

Italian reports and the Manchester Evening News state that Pereira will sign on loan for the rest of this season.

The deal includes an option to buy for a specific price, while both clubs will share the player's wages.

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare said, per the MEN: "We expect Andreas Pereira to be completed in the next two or three days with Manchester United."

Their manager Simone Inzaghi added: "I know him, he is a quality player who can give us a big helping hand. I don't want to talk too much about players who haven't signed yet.

"We'll see if he arrives or not."
