Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira facing six-game ban for breaking Brazilian quarantine rules after he moved to Flamengo on loan from Old Trafford... with sports court set to decide action on Friday

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira could land a six-match ban after sports bosses in Brazil announced they are investigating the loanee and new club Flamengo over a possible breach of quarantine rules.

Pereira joined the reigning Serie A champions on August 21 and may have completed only half of the required 14-day quarantine for travellers passing through the UK to Brazil, according to the country's Superior Sports Court for Football.

The case is scrutinising Pereira's involvement in Flamengo's 4-0 win at Santos on August 28, when he scored the final goal.
