Brazilian midfielder Andreas Pereira has been acquired by Fulham from Manchester United.

The London club has not disclosed the price, but it is believed that the deal will cost £10 million, plus add-ons.

With Marco Silva’s team, who were promoted to the Premier League after winning the Championship last season, the 26-year-old has agreed to a four-year contract.

Following the £17 million acquisition of Portuguese defensive midfielder Joao Palhinha from Sporting Lisbon, he is Fulham’s second acquisition of the summer.

Pereira said: “I’m very happy to be here and I can’t wait to start the season with Fulham.

“I want to help Fulham as much as I can to be where they belong. Marco Silva was very important for this. I spoke a lot with him, and he was a key factor in me being here.”

Pereira, who joined the United youth team when he was 16 years old, spent the previous season on loan at Flamengo in Brazil, scoring seven goals in 53 games.

He made his United debut in 2014 and has since played 75 times for the club at Old Trafford, in addition to spending time on loan at Granada, Valencia, and Lazio.

Pereira played for Belgium at the youth level and has one cap for Brazil. He was born in Belgium.
