Pereira staying at United – report

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira will not be joining Valencia on loan this summer, according to reports.

Valencia-based Plaza Deportiva report Los Che have given up in their attempts to land the Brazilian from Old Trafford due to the insistence of United boss Jose Mourinho that the playmaker was in his plans.

Reports in Spain over the weekend had suggested a season-long loan switch had been agreed for the 21-year-old but these reports later proved to be premature.

Mourinho’s persistence that Pereira, who played last season on loan at Granada, would play a role in United’s first team squad this season has ended hopes of a deal to the Mestalla.
