Official: Solskjaer confirm midfielder will be a Man United player after January window

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ruled out farming out Andreas Pereira on loan this month.

Pereira has been flagged by poor performances this term, leading many to believe he could be flogged or perhaps loaned out.

Pereira’s future has come under keen eyes this campaign, but Solskjaer has put down talks he could leave Old Trafford to seek regular time elsewhere.

The Brazilian international had been linked with a move to north Londoners Arsenal, Merseysiders Everton, West Ham since the window flung open many weeks ago.

Since Solskjaer grabbed the reins of the outfit from predecessor Jose Mourinho, the midfielder has only been named once in the caretaker’s starting XI.

However, it was not in the heavy thrashing of north Londoners Arsenal, who the Red Devils dumped out of the FA Cup on Friday night.

Andreas has been fantastic since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge last December, and he has asked that he should be kept within the club’s ranks.

“I can’t see him going out on loan,” Solskjaer said.

“Andreas has done fantastic in training ever since I’ve come back. I’ve kept in touch with Warren [Joyce], who had him in the reserves.”

He added:”I’ve known about Andreas from before and he’s a player that you could see playing quite a few games for us towards the end of the season.”
