Andreas Pereira joins Fulham on permanent deal from Manchester United

Fulham have officially announced the signing of Andreas Pereira from Manchester United for a fee of £10m.

The versatile midfielder has agreed on a four-year deal, tying him to Craven Cottage until the summer of 2026, with the club holding an option to extend by a further 12 months.

After signing his deal, Pereira said: “I’m very happy to be here and I can’t wait to start the season with Fulham.

“I want to help Fulham as much as I can to be where they belong. Marco Silva was very important for this. I spoke a lot with him, and he was a key factor in me being here.”

Tony Khan also commented: “It’s a tremendous pleasure to welcome Andreas Pereira to Fulham! Andreas is a very talented player, and he’s excited to join Fulham and work with our great coach Marco Silva.

“We believe that Andreas will be a valuable asset for the Club, and he’ll be an important part of our squad as we prepare for our return to the Premier League! Come on Fulham!”

Born in Belgium while his professional footballer father was playing there, Pereira later moved to neighbouring Holland where he joined PSV Eindhoven’s academy.

At the age of 16, he joined Manchester United, impressing as he moved up the age group to earn a senior debut in the League Cup in August 2014. A Premier League bow followed later that season in a 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.
