Chelsea are among the clubs showing an interest in Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira. The 22-year-old has struggled to make the grade at Old Trafford after arriving at the club in 2014 and a move away looks to be on cards at the end of the season.

The youngster looked to have played his way into the plans of United boss Jose Mourinho at the start of the season, but he has since slipped back down the pecking order once again.
The Brazil international has not made an appearance in over a month and looks unlikely to pen a new deal before his current one expires in the summer.
That has kicked off suggestions he could sign a pre-contract agreement with a club in January, and Chelsea are said to be considering a move for him.
Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is in the hunt for a new midfielder as doubts surround the future of Cesc Fabregas and could view Pereira as a bargain signing.
