Manchester United have handed many youngsters their debut this season as they look to build a bright future.
Louis van Gaal may have signed world class players in the summer transfer window but he is well aware of the significance of up-bringing rising stars.
One such young talent is Brazilian international Andreas Pereira.
The 18 year old boy has featured in 5 U21 league games for the Red Devils and scored 1 goal. His performances earned him call up for the first team squad.
Periera has not yet made a premier league appearance, was an unused substitute against Chelse, QPR and West Ham United. However, he did get some game time in the league cup defeat vs MK Dons.
The youngster confirmed that he wants to seal new deal with Manchester United and stay here for long. Andreas claimed:
“My intention is to stay here at the club, they didn’t speak with me until now, I need to train well, doing my part and if God wants they will extend my contract.
“My agent is in charge of everything, I asked him to do his job without telling me anything to keep my focus on the pitch. I need to think only about Manchester United otherwise it will spoil my work here.”
“I’m very happy, I’m playing in the first team since the manager selected me from the youth academy a month ago, I’m very pleased because I can develop my skills with the best players in the world. It’s been a great moment and I want to grow a lot as a player.”
With the likes of Blackett, McNair nearing new deals, it is likely that Periera may get a contract extension as well since he has been able to impress the boss and play with the first team.
