Lazio forward Andreas Pereira expressed his interest at signing permanently for the Biancocelesti yesterday.
Speaking in an interview with Brazilian journalist Clara Albuquerque at TNT Sports Brazil, the 25-year-old Brazilian discussed his future and if he’ll stay with the Roman club.
Lazio have the option to buy me back from Manchester United, so it all depends on the Biancocelesti. I know my skills have been appreciated this season and they have until the end of the season to make a decision.
Rome is a wonderful city, I wouldn’t mind staying with Lazio. If they don’t keep me, I’ll have to talk to Manchester United to see what’s best for the club and for me.
I’ve spoken to Solskjær to find out my future and he said we need to talk. I just want to play because I am still hoping for a call-up from Brazil for the World Cup in Qatar.
The 25-year-old Pereira, who is contracted to the Red Devils until 2023, has made 30 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 728 minutes.
In that time, he has scored one goal and provided four assists, impressing with his technical ability despite featuring so little.
