Man Utd midfielder Pereira sees Flamengo drop permanent transfer plans

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has seen a permanent move to Flamengo fall through.

The 26-year-old midfielder joined the Brazilian side on loan last summer after being deemed surplus to requirements by then-United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

He helped his new team to the final of the Copa Libertadores last year and was impressing coaching staff with his form in his homeland.

However, IG Esporte reports Fla is pulling out of a deal, due to two primary reasons.

The first is a decline in form from Pereira himself - he has been on the bench in recent weeks and since the turn of the year hasn't started regularly.

The second is due to legal complications regarding a 75 per cent part-ownership of the player, which has seemingly put the Brazilian side off a deal, amid problems between the club and the Central Bank.
