Napoli, Atalanta keen as Pereira determined to leave Man Utd

Andreas Pereira is determined to leave Manchester United this summer.

The 25-year-old is currently on loan at Serie A side Lazio and is hoping to make the move permanent.

ESPN says Pereira will try to force a move elsewhere even if Lazio do not agree to a permanent deal.

Fellow Italian clubs Napoli and Atalanta are also said to be interested in securing the Brazilian international's services.

Pereira has made 75 appearances for Man Utd since breaking into the first team during the 2014-15 campaign.

And despite playing 40 times for the Red Devils last season, he was still farmed out on loan to Lazio in the summer.

It is his third temporary spell in four years having also had stints at La Liga sides Granada and Valencia.

He has played 23 times for Lazio this season, netting just the one goal.
