Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira will join Serie A club Lazio for a season-long loan spell. English Premier League punters using Betway live betting are following the transfer window keenly. The 24 year old Brazilian arrived in Rome to complete the move that will see him spend the 2020-21 season in Lazio.
The arrival of Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon in January and Donny Van De Beek in the summer from Ajax has pushed Pereira down the pecking order. Despite playing 40 games in all competitions last season, Pereira has failed to cement his place in the starting eleven. The move is seen as suitable for both the club and the player as he continues his development.
Pereira did not make it to Manchester United’s matchday squads in the first two premier league games in which United have surprised punters on Betway. He was also left out of the teams that faced Luton and Brighton in the Carabao Cup encounters.
Lazio are working on reinforcing their squad after failing to sign David Silva, who opted to join Spanish side Real Sociedad after an illustrious career with former EPL champions Manchester City. Ole Gunner Solskjaer acknowledged that Lazio is a great team, and Pereira needs more game time so as not to hinder his development.
Sources privy to the deal claim that the loan deal includes an option to buy at the end of the 2020-21 campaign. During the loan period, Lazio will pay Pereira’s full wages. The departure of the Brazilian from Old Trafford could be the beginning of several other exits expected to happen before the window closes.
English defender Chris Smalling hopes to complete his move to Italian Club AS Roma after having a successful loan spell in the 2019-20 season. Roma had already made a bid for smalling, which was lower than what United wanted for the player. But, there is still optimism around the deal that it will happen. A deal would be beneficial to all parties involved with Smalling, not in Ole’s plans.
After a poor start to the 2020-21 season, a lot is expected in the transfer window for United. The Jadon Sancho transfer saga drags on as Dortmund remain adamant they are not selling while United are determined to bring their top target to Old Trafford. Other names on United’s radar include Alex Telles, who’s expected to come in and help steady the defense, which has been poor this season.
There are also reports suggesting that Edison Cavani could join United. The 33-year-old Uruguayan is a free agent after being released by French Champions PSG. His arrival would change EPL punters on Betway on United’s goalscoring.
On the exit list is Diogo Dalot, who completed a loan move to AC Milan while Leeds United is chasing Daniel James. United are also looking for suitable suitors for Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, and Marcos Rojo, who have fallen out of favor with Ole.
As things stand, Woodward is receiving a lot of criticism from fans and former players who feel he is mismanaging the club. The club is lagging behind other top clubs in the recruitment department, which has brought a lot of frustration to the fanbase.
