by Tanveer Arayan

Manchester United forward Andreas Pereira has posted a fitness video on Instagram showing new manager Jose Mourinho he is clearly ready for the new season.

Pereira made just two starts for Louis van Gaal in 2015-16 and was excluded from all but one of the last 17 matchday squads of the Dutchman’s time in charge.

He has previously spoken very positively about the arrival of Mourinho at Old Trafford after enduring a frustrating time under van Gaal and his new video shows him performing a number of fitness drills showcasing his dedication to keep fit for the upcoming campaign.

He was optimistic about his chances of game-time and rightly deserves to be on the pitch proving his talent, if there isn’t space for him at Old Trafford next season he should be allowed to leave on a loan deal to help him pick up some experience.

Van Gaal stopped his loan move but didn’t offer him any consistency on the first-team even though he showed plenty potential and even scored a beautiful free-kick against Ipswitch Town on his senior debut.

Adnan Januzaj, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Memphis Depay have also shown underlined their dedication by posting their gym efforts online and there’s no doubt the Brazilian will be relishing the opportunity to work under Mourinho.
