After getting some action for Manchester United in recent weeks, though mainly in the cup, Brazilian U-20 international Andreas Pereira is now trying to fulfill his dream of becoming a regular first-team player at the club. The 19-year-old superstar’s desire to play for the Red Devils has been rewarded with a few games and the attacker has been impressive when called upon, scoring a lovely free-kick a few months ago in a 3-0 win against Ipswich.
Despite that, the youngster already knows that establishing himself at Old Trafford will not be an easy task and that he will have to fight for his place. Talking to Brazilian football website Trivela, he stated, “He told me that he would like to have me in the squad and I would have to work hard to stay there. That’s what I’ve done, dedicated myself to be prepared. The team has improved a lot, our squad is stronger than last year, more experienced. The rest of the work is always the same, and our goal is to win a title this season. My goal is to stay here, try and win my place at United. But if I happen to have the option to go out on loan and do what Januzaj is doing and gain experience in another team, no problem, I will.“
