Andreas Pereira says he is open to leaving Manchester United this summer with the Red Devils outcast searching for regular football.
The Brazilian, 25, is expected to return to Old Trafford at the end of the campaign after failing to impress during a loan spell at Lazio this season, making just three starts from 24 appearances for Simone Inzaghi’s side.
Pereira has not been in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s plans for some time, having fallen out of favour following the arrival of Bruno Fernandes last January. Lazio are reportedly unlikely to make Pereira’s stay permanent this summer.

And the 25-year-old has revealed that he would be willing to leave Old Trafford permanently this summer, and invited interest from Vincent Kompany’s Anderlecht.
‘I will not close the door on any club,’ he told Eleven Sports.
‘The main thing is that I want regular playing time. So if Vincent Kompany was to phone me, or a club such as Club Brugge, it would depend on what kind of project they put forward, and what they have in mind.
‘If it is something positive that fits with my own ideas, then why not?’

Pereira still has two years remaining on his deal at United, with the club reportedly valuing the midfielder at £21million, having joined the club from Dutch side PSV Eindhoven as a teenager.
The 25-year-old made 53 appearances for United under Solskjaer, contributing three goals and five assists, but faces little prospect of working a way back into his plans.
After a rocky start to his tenure in charge of his boyhood club, Kompany has steadied the ship at Anderlecht, finishing the 2020-21 campaign in third place behind Antwerp and Club Brugge.
