Manchester United are playing a key role in negotiating Andreas Pereira’s tenure at Flamingo. However, he may be “forced” to leave the midfielder to move to another club without earning a penny.
The reason is that the English club already sees the sale of the 26-year-old’s financial rights to the Red and Black team as a last chance to make some money.
Andreas is on loan from United for the rest of the month. The agreement stipulates that if the 10 million euros (R $ 54.1 million) is paid, the Belgian-born Brazilian will remain in Gávea indefinitely.
But the Rio team is unwilling to pay for a player that fans have been chasing since they suffered a decisive defeat at the hands of Palmyra in the Libertadores-2021 final.
For this reason, he has been trying for several weeks to negotiate with the United management on the possibility of reducing the cost of the transfer to at least half of the initially agreed amount. But, at least so far, the British have not paid much attention to this proposal.
The “Rafael Reis Blog” found that Andreas already knew that, even if he was not kept “for good” by Fla, he would not be part of the Manchester club squad next season. The midfielder even thought it could be used in England again, as the Red Devils’ new manager, Eric Tan Hague, has known him since the days of the Netherlands.
But it will not happen. The current 18 red and black shirts are on United’s “Expensive” list. This means that Cristiano Ronaldo’s team is looking for a team that is ready to pay their financial dues.
If Andreas’ situation is not resolved by the end of the transfer window in Europe (end of August), the British will be able to give him a loan or release him for free to transfer to another team. After all, to them, both transactions mean the same thing.
As Brazil’s contract with United expires in June 2023, the new one-year loan will have the same effect as a permanent transfer, as the player will not return to Old Trafford. So the real risk of losing it for free is real.
Rumors have been circulating in recent weeks about other clubs that could invest in Andreas’ immediate signing, the strongest of them being Fenerbahce, who is now the coach of Portuguese Jorge Jesus, who led the Red and Black team. I dated. However, this conversation has not yet developed into anything concrete.
Of the last five matches he has played, three have already been led by Doriwal Jr., with Flamingo winning just one against Cuiabá. In addition, it lost to Fortaleza, Red Bull Bragentino, International and Atlético-MG.
With a set of negative results, the Red Black club dropped out of the Brazilian Championship rankings and is on the verge of relegation zone. At 14th, they are just one point ahead of 17th-ranked Goiás, which opens up the relegation group.
His next three promises will be valid for three different matches and will play a key role in the possible recovery of the season.
Visit Fla Atlético-MG tomorrow, the first leg of the Copa du Brazil Round of 16. Then, he received América-MG for Série A. on Saturday and, next Wednesday (29th), he debuts in the Libertadores’ decisive playoff against Tolima in Colombia.
