Andreas Pereira admits he’d love to extend his loan spell with Lazio into next season, while he also sees Spanish football as a good environment for his own ability.
The 25-year-old moved to Lazio last summer amid a lack of playing time at Manchester United, but once again struggled for consistency during his spell in Serie A.
Pereira netted one goal and notched four assists in 33 appearances this past season and will be looking to reignite his career with a more successful spell in the next campaign.
The Belgium-born Brazilian says United still feels like a ‘second home’ despite falling down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, though he admits another loan move to Lazio might be the best next step.
“Premier League, Serie A, and La Liga? They are super leagues,” Pereira told Tuttomercatoweb when quizzed on his future. “The English one is very physical, and as you can see, I don’t have the ideal physique! Joking aside, I loved playing in England; Spanish football is more my style of play.
“Future? I would like to stay and play for Lazio again, but this depends on the discussion with United and what they will want to do with me.
“I have a contract with the club; it’s like a second home for me. I have been there since I was 16; I always talk to the people who work for the club.”
