Star of Manchester United's reserve team, Andreas Pereira, is reportedly set to walk out on the club when his contract expires in the summer. The 19-year-old is believed to have already rejected a new United deal, and he's apparently set to move to the Netherlands on a free transfer.

In quotes from De Telegraaf, translated by Sport Witness, PSV Eindhoven is his likely destination:

"It's true that we talk to PSV. PSV have contacted our advisors. The intention is that they will soon go to the table with PSV."

The Daily Mail are reporting that Feyenoord are also interested, so the Belgian-born Brazilian youth international isn't likely to be short on offers. As one of the current crop of reserves believed to be closest to a first team breakthrough, it'll be a massive shame to lose him. Let's just hope this doesn't turn into the Paul Pogba situation all over again.
