According to Daily Star, the exits could be headlined by high-profile players, with Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, and Juan Mata all anticipated to leave.

The publication claims Pereira is also among the United stars on the verge of quitting Old Trafford after the Red Devils sanctioned a £12million exit.

Where is Pereira headed?

Brazilian club Flamengo who Pereira is currently turning out for on loan are believed to be the leading contenders for his services.

The 26-year-old is understood to have become an instrumental squad player in Paulo Sousa's team and the club are now eager to make his stay into a permanent transfer.

The United academy graduate has enjoyed a stellar spell with Flamengo and has already managed to score five goals in 24 appearances.

According to respected journalist Fred Caldeira, United have since accepted a £12m bid from the Sao Paulo-based club for the services of Pereira.

Pereira's stint at Man United

Meanwhile, Pereira joined the Man United academy back in 2011 as a teenager and managed to flourish through the ranks.

He eventually managed to break into the senior team and has since recorded 75 appearances for them.

However, he has not featured for the Manchester side since a 3-0 away win at Brighton in June 2020.

Lacazette named Arsenal captain

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has appointed Alexander Lacazette as the club's new captain for the remainder of the 2021/22 campaign.

The Gunners have been without a substantive skipper since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was stripped of the role following "a disciplinary breach."

And with the Gabonese striker already past tense at the Emirates following his January switch to Barcelona, Arteta has resolved to fill the role with Lacazette.
