Fulham has the option of an additional year in his contract that could see him attached to Craven Cottage until 2027.

The 26-year-old progressed through United’s youth system after joining PSV Eindhoven in 2011.

Pereira played in 75 matches and scored four goals for United, which loaned him to Granada, Valencia, Lazio and Flamengo.

He moved to Fulham in search of more regular action, telling the club’s website: “I am very happy to be here and I can’t wait to start the season with Fulham.

“I want to help Fulham as much as possible, where they are. (Fulham manager) Marco Silva was very important to it. I talked a lot with him, and he was a key factor in my being here.”
