Manchester United have confirmed Andreas Pereira have joined Brazilian side Flamengo on loan for the 2021-22 season.

The 25 year old attacking midfielder is keen on having more playing time ahead of the World Cup next year.

Pereira spent last season on loan at Lazio but the Italian side did not want to take up the £21 million ($29m) option to sign him permanently.

According to Goal, Flamengo will pay a loan fee of £850,000 (€1million) and 60% of his wages. It is also understood the deal includes an option to buy at the end of the season.
