The move from Andreas Pereira to Flamengo should be confirmed shortly.

Globo Esporte report Pereira has approved the move and wants to join the Brazilian national team.

As we wrote earlier this week, Pereira’s exit is a financial disappointment for United.

The club gave him pre-season playtime this summer at the expense of better prospects, with the goal of putting him in the shop window to get a fee upfront and get his wages off the books.

A loan is very disappointing for United – but the club is still financially entitled to some money.

What is in the agreement?

The Times report United is expected to charge a prepayment fee of £ 850,000 for Pereira.

This is far less than United’s requested £ 10m to 20m transfer fee, but it’s just better than nothing.

United has also agreed to have Flamengo pay 60 percent of Pereira’s annual salary of £ 2.6million.

This means the Brazilian club will pay United £ 1.56m and, along with the loan fee, United will receive a total of £ 2.41m from the deal.

Fabrizio Romano reports that there is an option to buy for £ 12.84 million (€ 15 million).

But considering that Pereira only has one year left on his contract and it’s unlikely that he’ll fight for his services next summer, we wouldn’t bet they’ll pay.

Pereira was once a player United had high hopes for at the academy and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer gave him a good chance a few seasons ago.

He just didn’t develop into the breakthrough talent United had hoped for and that quickly became apparent when Bruno Fernandes arrived and showed the difference there is with a really top-notch attacking midfielder.
