Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Says Man United Outcast Could Return To The Club

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left the door open for a Manchester United outcast to return to the club following his loan spell.


Man United have been recently linked with a host of players, with the winter transfer window quickly approaching.

But a forgotten player on the books could return to the fold, says Solskjaer.

The Norwegian spoke about the future of Andreas Pereira, who is currently on loan at Brazilian side Flamengo.

Pereira, 25, has enjoyed loan spells at Granada, Valencia and Lazio since the 2016/17 season.

Despite racking up minutes away from Old Trafford, the Man United boss believes the Belgium-born midfielder will return to the club.

He told TNT Sports via Caught Offside: "Yes, we follow. Of course. [Pereira] is a great player and a fantastic person. I'm so happy for him and knowing he's enjoying this moment.

"For us, the logic was: Andreas, go and show how good you are.

"I couldn't give him enough playing time, and we know the quality he has. When they believe in him, he's a top-quality player, so I'm happy for him."

Solskjaer added: "At a certain point in a player's career, it's important to have enough playing time at the highest level.

"Last year Andreas was on loan and didn't play as much. Last season he played a lot of games with us, soon after we brought Bruno [Fernandes].

"I'm happy for Andreas now, and we'll see him again soon."
