Man Utd midfielder Pereira: Lazio can buy me

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has admitted he 'wouldn't mind' staying at Lazio.

Pereira is on loan at the Serie A club after falling down the midfield pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following the arrival of Bruno Fernandes in January, 2020.

"Lazio have the option to buy me back from Manchester United, so it all depends on the Biancocelesti," he said.

"I know my skills have been appreciated this season and they have until the end of the season to make a decision.

"Rome is a wonderful city and I wouldn't mind staying there. If they don't keep me, I'll have to talk to Manchester United to see what's best for the club and for me.

"I've spoken to Solskjær to find out my future and he said we need to talk. I just want to play because I am still hoping for a call-up from Brazil for the World Cup in Qatar."
