The Brazilian admits that he wants to stay in the Olympic Stadium, but he does not know what plans the Red Devils have for him.
Manchester United loan player Andreas Pereira wants to extend his stay in Lazio, admitting that he does not have the “ideal physique” of the Premier League.
In October last year, Pereira, led by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, will be loaned to Lazio for a season after falling OId Trafford’s ranking.
The 25-year-old player made a deep impression at the Olympic Stadium in the 2020-21 season and hopes to continue playing in Serie A, but he admits that the final decision on his future will be made by Manchester United.
What did you say?
When asked where he will play next season, Pereira said Tongshangwang: “The Premier League, Serie A and La Liga? They are the Super League.
“The English people are physically very good. As you can see, I don’t have the ideal physique! I joked, I like playing in England; Spanish football is more like my style of playing.
“In the future? I want to stay and play for Lazio again, but it depends on discussions with Manchester United and what they want to do to me.
“I have a contract with the club; it’s like a second home to me. I have been there since I was 16; I always talk to people who work for the club.”
Pereira’s record in Lazio
Pereira played 33 times for Lazio last season, including 26 Serie A appearances, helping them get sixth.
The Brazilian only scored one goal for the Rome-based team, beating Torino 4-3, but he did score four goals for his teammates.
So far, Pereira has played for Manchester United throughout his career. He first entered the first team in 2014 as a teenager.
However, the midfielder has been unable to become a regular at Old Trafford and has only made 75 appearances for the club so far. In Solskjaer’s team, the competition for the midfield position is more intense than ever. .
Pereira’s contract with the Red Devils is still two years away, but according to reports, if they receive a suitable offer, they can honor the midfield organizer.
