With the signings of Jadon Sancho and Tom Heaton this summer, and the arrival of Raphael Varane set to take place soon as well, Manchester United have one of the best squads in the Premier League going into the new season.
There is incredible depth in a number of positions. And while more additions are needed in some areas, that might not happen before some players end up departing Old Trafford first.
There are a number of players in this squad who are not expected to receive a lot of playing time at Old Trafford this season. As a result, a move away might be the best option for them moving forward.
Andreas Pereira is one such player. He spent the previous campaign out on loan at Lazio and is expected to leave this time around as well. As reported by TNT Sports (via Sport Witness), Everton have made a loan offer for him, with an option to buy included. Flamengo have also made a loan offer for Pereira while Fenerbahce are believed to be interested in signing him but are yet to make an offer.

Pereira has been heavily linked with a Manchester United exit this summer
Coming through the academy, Pereira was one of the most highly-rated players at the club. But he has not quite managed to find his feet in senior football yet.
With the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek and Jesse Lingard ahead of him in the pecking order, it feels unlikely that the 25-year-old attacking midfielder will get a lot of playing time next season.
Thus, a move away from the club, either on loan or on a permanent basis, would make a lot of sense for Pereira at this stage of his career. His current deal is believed to run till the summer of 2023. Thus, if the Red Devils do send him out on loan for another season, he will be in the final 12 months of his contract by the time he returns.
