Fulham have announced that they have completed the signing of Andreas Pereira from Manchester United for a fee that could rise to £10m.

The midfielder has made the move to Fulham for an initial £8m plus a further £2m in add-ons, according to PA News Agency.

Fulham have an option to extend his contract by a further year. This would tie him to Craven Cottage until 2027.

Pereira made 75 first-team appearances for United, who have loaned him out to Granada, Valencia, Lazio and Flamengo, but has left in search of more regular action.

Pereira said on Fulham’s website: “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.”

Fulham’s co-owner (Tony Khan) added: “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!”
