Nobody Can Believe Manchester United Are About To Send Youngster On Loan To Valencia
Despite impressing throughout Manchester United's pre season tour of Los Angeles, one of the club's biggest talents will reportedly join La Liga side Valencia in the coming days.
It is believed that 21-year-old midfielder Andreas Pereira will join the Spanish club on a season-long loan from Jose Mourinho's side - a decision that has baffled many Manchester United supporters.
Pereira drew plenty of plaudits in fixtures against Sampdoria and Valerenga last month, but Jose Mourinho has decided to send the youngster on loan to gain more experience, according to Spanish-based journalist Sid Lowe.
To clarify on Pereira: Valencia have confirmed it (per @carrusel). Loan deal. Could be good for everyone.- Sid Lowe (@sidlowe) August 27, 2017
Pereira spent a season at Granada last season and despite suffering relegation, the 21-year-old impressed.
The midfielder scored five times in 37 appearances, with his performances in La Liga leaving plenty of Manchester United fans purring for what was to come this season - but it seems the talented youngster will be offloaded on loan once again.

It was a superb pre-season for Pereira.
While Manchester United new boys Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof made their highly anticipated debuts, Pereira produced a number of brilliant performances from the middle of the park.
As you can see in the clip below, the Pogba and Pereira partnership shone in their pre-season fixture against Valerenga.
Here's how Twitter reacted to the news:
If Pereira is leaving on loan, it almost certainly means a new arrival at Old Trafford. Can't understand the deal without that reason.- Adam Joseph (@AdamJosephSport) August 27, 2017
Pereira to Valencia loan more or less confirmed....shocking decision. Has to be a signing this week now- Mark Goldbridge (@markgoldbridge) August 27, 2017
Disappointing that Pereira is going out on loan again but looks like he'll get barely any minutes this season. Impressed in preseason too.- JC (@JustCantona) August 27, 2017
What's the point in loaning Pereira to Spain? Would much rather have sent him to Watford or another Premier League side.- Jordan Clarke (@FourFourJordan) August 27, 2017
Looks like Pereira's off to Valencia on loan. Good move, but I wished we would have kept hold of him just for the squad depth #mufc- Reginaldo Rosario (@Regi1700) August 27, 2017
Andreas Pereira is a talented footballer who needs to play regularly too good a talent to sit on sidelines #Mufc- الياس (@ily_patel) August 27, 2017
Do you think Manchester United should offload Pereira to Valencia on loan? Or should they utilize his talent in the coming months?
