Man Utd chief Murtough calls Pereira: You're staying!

Brazil midfielder Andreas Pereira has been told he is part of new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag's plans.

Pereira hasn't played for United since June 2020 as he spent the last two seasons on loan at Lazio and Flamengo most recently.

Yahoo Brasil reports, however, the midfielder will be given one more opportunity to shine at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils' football director John Murtough has reportedly contacted the Brazil international to inform him Ten Hag believes he "fits the desired squad profile".

It has also been claimed that the Dutch tactician will soon contact the 26-year-old and discuss plans for next season.

United are currently not keen on selling Pereira to Flamengo in the summer even though his contract runs out next year.
