According to a shocking flurry of late tweets from Fabrizio Romano, Andreas Pereira is headed to Lazio a day after rumors surfaced over a possible move, while new reports of Chris Smalling to AS Roma and Diogo Dalot to AC Milan are also in the ether.
As seen in the Romano tweet above, Pereira is headed on year-long loan to Lazio with an option to buy set at €27 million(!) once he passes his medical later this week. The club that finished fourth in the Serie A last season will share Pereira’s salary with Manchester United. However, less optimistic United fans will be concerned that the loan only has an option and not an obligation to buy. If Pereira plays for Lazio the way he has played for United, he will surely be a United player again next season after a season-long rental.
