Manchester United have confirmed that 24-year-old midfielder, Andreas Pereira, has left the club to join Lazio on a season-long loan.
Man United made this known in a statement via the club’s official website on Friday night ahead of their Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
The statement read:
“Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has completed a season-long loan move to Lazio, after passing his medical in Rome.
“The 24-year-old, who joined United’s Academy from PSV Eindhoven in 2011, has been allowed to leave Old Trafford following the arrival of Bruno Fernandes in January.”
