Manchester United appear to have made their signings early in this summer transfer window and now, it is the Old Trafford exits that are taking place.

The arrivals of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Tom Heaton this summer means that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad has been strengthened significantly and has much more depth this time around. But that also means that some players will find playing time hard to come by.

As a result, these players are expected to leave the club either on loan or on a permanent basis in search of first-team football.

And it looks like Andreas Pereira is going to be the next one to be headed out of Old Trafford on loan. Fabrizio Romano tweeted out that the deal for him to join Flamengo on loan until June 2022 is done:

Pereira is set to leave Manchester United on another season-long loan spell

Pereira was one of the most highly-rated youngsters at the club while coming through the academy but he has not quite managed to find his feet in first-team football till now.

He spent the previous season on loan with Lazio and did not enjoy a great campaign there either. As a result, he has been back at Old Trafford this summer and featured for Solskjaer’s side in pre-season, even scoring an incredible volley.

But if he was to remain at the club, it is unlikely that he would get too many first-team minutes considering the the depth in attacking midfield at Manchester United right now. As a result, a season-long loan spell makes a lot of sense for Pereira.

A move to Flamengo will also allow him to play in a completely different league and hopefully help in his overall development as a player. It is believed that one of his dreams is to represent the Brazil national team at the World Cup and as a result, this could be a big opportunity for him to impress Tite.
