Manchester United youngster Andreas Pereira is reportedly on the cusp of joining La Liga side Granada on loan. The 20-year-old midfielder does not feature in Jose Mourinho's plans this season and has been made available for loan.
Pereira has been linked with moves to Fulham and Middlesbrough, but now appears set to make the switch to Spain, where he can continue his development. If the deal is completed, the Brazilian will become the fourth United youngster to leave the club in the last week, following in the footsteps of James Wilson, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Tyler Blackett.
Pereira is among those who, like Borthwick-Jackson, features in Mourinho's long-term plans at United, according to the Daily Mail. However, the Portuguese wants to work with a 26-man squad this season and he has not been able to find space for Pereira for the current campaign.
Another player in a similar position is Adnan Januzaj, who recently joined Sunderland on a season-long loan deal. The highly-rated Belgian was linked with a permanent move away from Old Trafford, but Mournho has revealed he is a fan of the 21-year-old winger.
"He fits my plans," Mourinho recently insisted. "That's why he is on loan at a Premier League club. If he doesn't fit I don't care about him, don't care where he's going, which club, which competition, which manager.
"Maybe I send him to Borussia Dortmund. Yes, we care about him, we think he is a talented player but to be in the same squad as Martial, Mkhitaryan, Young, Depay would mean not many matches."
