Manchester United fans were thrilled with Andreas Pereira‘s stunning goal for Granada in their La Liga clash with Las Palmas.
He’s done very well to set himself up with a brilliant touch outside the box before absolutely smashing an unstoppable volley into the corner, leaving Javi Varas without a chance.
The 21-year-old has been on loan this season at an under-performing Granada side and has announced himself as one of their most influential attacking players, linking up play, getting the ball forward and creating individual strokes of brilliance as we saw against Las Palmas.
Here’s what fans on social media have to say about his performance.
Another stunning Andreas Pereira goal. Granada would be lost without him…#MUFC

Andreas Pereira's potential is scarily good. He'll come back next season as a more accomplished player. Will be in Mourinho's plans.

There were doubts over Pereira’s move to Spain, but he’s done incredibly well to establish himself in a side that haven’t performed well, as they sit 19th in the La Liga table, with just two wins from 21 games played.
It would have been an incredible learning experience for Pereira and there’s no doubt playing each week has developed his game as he looks to return and fit back into Jose Mourinho’s plans.
