Many West Bromwich Albion fans have discussed the future of Matheus Pereira, who is expected to make his loan deal at the club into a permanent one this summer.
The Brazilian playmaker has had a superb season at the Hawthorns, arguably being the club’s best performer and most consistent.

Has Matheus Pereira done these 12 things at West Brom? Have a go now!
Having signed on a one-year loan from Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon, the midfielder’s deal also included the option to make the move permanent should the Baggies gain promotion or a certain amount of games played was met.
Having played 33 league games this term, Albion are expected to pay €10m to make the move permanent, a deal that would be most welcome ahead of what looks increasingly likely to be a Premier League campaign next term.
Despite Albion’s obvious desire to bring Pereira in on a full-time contract, Portuguese press O Jogo, via Sport Witness, have claimed that the English club have asked Sporting officials to stall on proceedings due to the recent pandemic.
