Andreas Pereira‘s debut season in the Manchester United first team has come to a premature end, with the player himself confirming he is now on his way to the U20 World Cup.
The tournament kicks off in New Zealand in two week’s time, and Pereira will continue his international career with Brazil, after declaring himself for the nation despite being born in Belgium.
Despite worries among fans Pereira would depart on a free as Paul Pogba did, Pereira has put pen-to-paper on a new deal and will return to Old Trafford for pre-season alongside his teammates.
Pereira made his debut for the club back in August in the defeat to MK Dons, before going on to make his league debut in the 3-0 win over Spurs a couple of months ago.
On the way to the World Cup! Let's go Brazil!!!

Pereira could be one of a number of players set for a loan move next season, with PSV emerging as a potential option even before Memphis Depay agreed to move to Old Trafford.
James Wilson and Adnan Januzaj could also be set for loan moves next season, with first team opportunities for the pair already limited before the next influx of new signings arrive in the coming months.
