Fulham have made an £11million offer for Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira.
The 26-year-old is currently on loan at Brazilian club Flamengo but now has the option of returning to the Premier League with newly-promoted Fulham.
The Cottagers have made an initial £8.6million offer, rising to £11m if certain performance related targets are met.
Fulham have submitted an offer to sign Andreas Pereira from Manchester United
Pereira is currently on loan at Flamengo, but Fulham want to bring him back to England
It is now up to Pereira to decide if he wants to join Fulham, have a crack at trying to impress new United boss Erik ten Hag or prioritise a permanent deal with Flamengo.
Importantly, though, it is understood United will listen to offers for Pereira this summer as Ten Hag looks to reshape his squad.
As it stands, Pereira is available to play for Flamengo against Tolima in the Copa Libertadores later this week.
Indeed, Flamengo are keen on trying to secure Pereira to a permanent deal following his impressive displays for the club since arriving on loan in August, scoring seven goals and providing three assists and 52 matches.
But the Brazilian have found complications in trying to strike a deal with United for Pereira and Fulham are now hoping to take advantage of the impasse.
Pereira could still opt to return to Old Trafford to try to impress new manager Erik ten Hag
