Agents hard at work

Chelsea FC v Manchester United - Premier League

Since making a 6-minute cameo against Chelsea, 22-year-old Brazilian international Andreas Pereira has made zero appearances for José Mourinho at Manchester United. And while United do have the club-option to extend the midfielder’s expiring contract by an additional season, his agent is clearly hard at work in trying to engineer him a move away from the club he joined on his 16th birthday back in January 2012.

According to UOL Esporte (following similar recent reports in the English media), Chelsea and Arsenal are two of several top European clubs keeping tabs on the former Belgium youth international’s prospects (he was born in Belgium to a Brazilian father). PSG are of course interested as well, plus all the usual suspects from Spain and Italy and you can practically write these things yourself.

Pereira has shown well in two loan seasons spent in La Liga (at Granada and at Valencia), but has not convinced Mourinho as he once had Van Gaal. Whoever can get him next will probably end up getting a decent bargain, though whether that club should be Chelsea is certainly debatable (we have plenty of our prospects to deal with and give proper minutes to).
