Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has confirmed that he wants to stay at Lazio following his season-long loan spell.
Since arriving in Italy last summer, the 25-year-old has gone on to feature in 33 matches, in all competitions, directly contributing to five goals, along the way.
However, with his loan contract set to end at the end of the month, Pereira is now preparing to return to his parent club back in Manchester.
Addressing his long-term future, while speaking recently to Tuttomercatoweb, the South American said: “Premier League, Serie A, and La Liga? They are super leagues.
“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.”
