Man Utd midfielder Pereira opens door to Fenerbahce move

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has opened the door to a move to Fenerbahce.

The Brazilian midfielder has featured for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side during pre-season and he knows he needs to be playing every week when the new season starts.

“I'm ready to play, I'm not a boy anymore. I'm a man ready to take responsibility," Andreas Pereira 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 at the academy, I can score more goals and make assists. A player of my position needs the confidence to play and the freedom to dare on the field.

“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.

“We are focused on looking for the best for my career. That's what my staff thinks. And I know United want the same."

When asked specifically about Fenerbahce's interest Pereira expressed interest in such a move and following in the footsteps of compatriot Alex.

He added: “I leave the negotiations to my agent. If the interest is true, it would be great to talk to interested teams and see the project for my career, the importance I will have in the squad and future projection.

“About Fenerbahce, it's a country with people passionate about football. And Alex is one of my idols in the position, it would be nice to wear his shirt. Why not? But it all depends on what they want for my career, as well as other interested clubs."
