Andreas Pereira: Fulham complete signing of Andreas Pereira from Manchester United | Soccer News

Fulham have completed the signing of Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira for an estimated £10million.

United retained a 20% sales commission in the deal, Sky Sports News includes, with Fulham paying £8m upfront and a further £2m in add-ons.

The Brazilian midfielder has spent the last 11 years at Old Trafford, coming through the youth academy as a teenager. Pereira made 75 appearances for United in total, scoring four times.

The 26-year-old spent last season on loan at Brazilian side Flamengo, scoring eight goals in 31 appearances. His final United appearance came at the end of the 2019/20 season, with the midfielder spending the following campaign at Serie A Lazio.

Pereira is Fulham’s second signing since promotion to the Premier League last season, with fellow midfielder Joao Palhinha coming from Sporting Lisbon for an undisclosed fee.

Fulham are also set to sign Shakhtar Donetsk winger Manor Solomon on a season-long loan after the 22-year-old completed his medical.

“I’m very happy to be here and I can’t wait to start the season with Fulham,” Pereira told Fulham’s official website. “I want to help Fulham as much as possible to be where they belong.

“Marco Silva was very important for that. I spoke with him a lot and he was a key factor for me to be here.”

West Ham are also in talks with Fulham over the sale of defender Issa Diop, but there is a valuation gap between the two teams.

Initial talks centered on an initial fee of £12m plus performance-related add-ons, but the Irons value the centre-back at around £20m.

The 25-year-old, who joined West Ham for a club-record £21.9million from Toulouse in June 2018, started just 10 Premier League games last season despite making 26 appearances in all competitions.

Fulham are in the hunt for a centre-back, having already approached Manchester United over Eric Bailly’s availability earlier in this window.
