Manchester United have handed first team opportunities to many youngsters this season under Louis van Gaal and they have impressed.
McNair and Blackett have performed well in defense, whereas Wilson has been decent in attack thus far and is progressing well.
Another youngster who has been part of the first team squad but could not feature much is Belgian international Andreas Pereira.
The 19 year old playmaker has been part of Manchester United’s first team squad in the premier league on 5 occasions but each time he could only warm the bench.
Pereira did feature against MK Dons in the league cup for 44 minutes in a game where the Red Devils were humiliated losing 4-0.
For the U21s side, Andreas has played in 14 games for Manchester United this season, scored 3 goals and provided 2 assists as well.
Capable of playing in different attacking positions, the versatile playmaker has impressed Man United’s boss who wants to keep him with the club.
However, reports suggest that Pereira has snubbed deals from Manchester United to agree move to Italian champions Juventus.
The Serie A giants are leading the league once again and Periera admitted that Juve will be too good to turn down.
“Everyone knows that Juve are a great club.”
“I have spoken with Pogba many times, he is a good friend and he told me that I would be well served in moving to Turin, both personally and professionally, two important things for me”
United are still ruing the loss of Paul Pogba as the French international is now one of the best midfielder in the world playing for Juve. They will surely regret not holding on to Pereira as well if he also turns into a big star like Pogba.
