Pereira joined Lazio on loan from the Red Devils last October but struggled to make an impact under previous coach Simone Inzaghi. Whilst he did make 26 Serie A appearances this season, he was in the starting 11 for only three of those; disappointing for the talented Brazilian.

Despite his limited playing time, the Manchester United owned forward still enjoyed his time in Rome and may be open to spending another year in the Italian capital.
