Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho has given the green light for Andreas Pereira to join Valencia on loan for the rest of the season, and it hasn’t gone down well.
It’s been a busy summer for the Red Devils, as they’ve added a number of core signings to the squad with Victor Lindelof, Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku set to play integral roles moving forward.
Competition for places is strong at Old Trafford, especially in the attacking positions with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial for example currently in a real battle for a place in the starting line-up on the left flank.
However, one decision has been met with an angry response from supporters, and that’s regarding Pereira who has been shipped out on loan again after impressing last season during his temporary spell with Granada.
His form there wasn’t enough to convince Mourinho to keep him around this season, and the reaction hasn’t been kind as seen in the tweets below with Jesse Lingard also coming into the line of fire as many fans argued that Pereira would be a more useful option than the England international…
