After being officially announced as Flamengo’s reinforcement, Andreas Pereira trained for the first time with his new club mates. The midfielder, hired from Manchester United, participated in the collective, showed good resourcefulness and should be listed for the first time this Wednesday, against Grêmio, in Porto Alegre, for the first leg of the quarterfinals of the Copa do Brasil.
This at least is the planning of the technical committee. Of course, the decision will be taken after conversations between coach Renato Gaúcho and members of the medical and physiology department. The physical issue, at least, doesn’t worry. Andreas was training normally in England and performed well for Flamengo.
Even at the press conference, a few minutes after being registered at CBF, Andreas Pereira did not hide his desire to make his debut for Flamengo against Grêmio. The player responded with a “Of course!” when asked if he wanted to go to the game on Wednesday.
On loan from Manchester United, Andreas Pereira signed a contract valid until the middle of 2022, with an option to buy around 20 million euros, around 127 million reais at the current price.
