With the signing of two more players expected to be done before the transfer window is slammed shut, there will be competition for places in the first team of Manchester United, and this is expected to bring out the best in the players.
Belgian midfielder ANDREAS PEREIRA, has revealed that he would stay back at Man United and fight for a place in the team despite Clubs scrapping for his signature on a loan deal.
Pereira joined Man United after impressive for Dutch side PSV Eindhoven at the Manchester United Premier Cup in 2011. He had a breakthrough in the 2014/2015 season following his stellar performance that earned him the Red Devil’s Under-21 Player of the Season award.
The versatile midfielder was sent out on loan to La Liga side Granada last season to aid his development and he impressed for the Audalusian club albeit they were still relegated – he netted five goals in 35 La Liga appearances for Granada.
Pereira, 21, is currently with United’s pre-season squad and he was quizzed about the possibility of another loan spell and he replied thus:
“No, now I am focused at United. I am here and I want to stay here and I believe I am going to stay.”
“I am here and I want to stay here and I believe I am going to stay.”
The highly rated winger was born in Begium but currently laces his boots for the Samba boys of Brazil and he may be playing for the bench for United when the season comes alive.
“I was very happy (last season), I watched every game. The last game I even came to watch, the last Premier League game.
“I was very excited and, yeah, of course it is nice when United is winning back things and trophies. Hopefully we can kick on and win more trophies.”
