PICTURE: Manchester United’s new Brazilian midfielder ready for his debut

by Sam Peoples

Andreas Pereira is in line to make his debut for Brazil’s Under-20s this week in a tournament out in China.

The 18-year-old made it abundantly clear that he wanted to play for Brazil despite the fact he could have followed in Adnan Januzaj‘s footsteps and chosen Belgium but he’ll make the trip to China after he received the call-up to Brazil last month.

Pereira will not be committed to Brazil until he plays for their senior side but he made it clear that is what he intends to do if given the opportunity.

Last season, Pereira had an indifferent campaign for United’s Under-21s that was characterised by flashes of brilliance amidst some other invisible performances but he should be excited by the arrival of Louis van Gaal as it’ll give him more opportunity to break into the first team sooner rather than later.
