Andreas Pereira has reportedly made up his mind to leave Manchester United after failing to convince Jose Mourinho to offer him regular gametime.

The Brazilian had an impressive loan season with Valencia during the previous campaign where he made 29 appearances for the Spanish club across all competitions.

As such, he managed to earn a regular role with United during pre-season but he has not been able to receive a similar amount of gametime from the start of the 2018/19 campaign.

According to Yahoo! Sport, the 22-year-old has accepted that he may not become a regular with United and he may have to pursue a fresh challenge in order to enhance his international prospects.

Pereira earned his maiden cap with Brazil after featuring regularly during the month of August but he has since become a forgotten man with just a couple of appearances from the bench for United.

The United graduate currently has just eight months remaining on his existing contract and it appears likely that he could part ways in January or leave on a Bosman next summer.
