Andreas Hugo Hoelgebaum Pereira
Jan 1, 1996 (21)
Despite Granada's struggles, one of the few players we've sent out on loan in recent times who has played well.
Expect him to come back a better player for that experience he gained.
Had a very good game against Real away, seemed totally unfazed. Could be a rising star this season hopefully
Got a very good feeling about him playing for us this season, ideal back up for Pogba.
Looking forward to seeing him more this season hopefully.
Will be interesting to see where he is deployed on tour. I liked him in the deeper role last summer against Wigan can't see him getting much game time as a LM with Martial/rashford and potentially Perisic.
He looked class in most of the games vs the big three in Spain tbf. He's added so much to his game last season including grit, defensive awareness and agility. He's got a great pass on him too. Hopefully he gets plenty of game time next season. I personally think he's a bigger talent than Martial and Rashford.
I have high hopes for this guy, looking forward to how he gets on in preseason.
Worried for Andreas despite him being named in the US tour squad. We've had prospects like this before and they've all been bit part players who play here and there in preseason and the League Cup and Champions League dead rubbers, before eventually falling by the wayside.
He's clearly a good player but not sure he'll get the chances his performances have deserved. Really hope I'm wrong and that Mou gives him a chance as he could be a decent player for us. If Lingard can be a squad player for us, then Pereira certainly can.
If you look at our squad and some of the players Mourinho has brought in it shows he's more open to playing younger players than is being made out. If he is good enough - which I think he is - he will play, it's that cut and dry with Jose.
He can play every midfield and attacking midfield position so I think he should get a lot of games and be a useful player for us.
All he has to do to is grab his chances and make himself more important than fellaini then he will get 20+starts
hope he just gets a chance to prove himself, i remember watching him in the u20 world cup he was class then.
I know it's only a youtube vid in the OP but he's starting to look like like one feck of a player, just hope he seizes his chance this season, can't wait to see him on the tour..
Personally think he could be the most important talent we have in the first team squad atm
Sincerely hope he makes it here. Could do with his versatility and he does seem to have the talent.
Desperately looking forward to seeing Pereira feature for us next season. Talented player.
Lingard scoring against Barcelona. Legendary
His played positions, though, all over the place. Mourinho likes specialists!
No, Mourinho likes players who do the job how he wants them done. Big difference.
I was quoting him there. But, yeah, that too.
He's such a talented player but I just don't see where he fits in our team at the minute.
For now, he just has to fit as a sub, that is, a squad player. If he stays and the number of midfield and attacking players are these, he'll have plenty of minutes.
I think he could develop into an awesome deep lying playmaker like carrick.
Yeah, at youth level he was thrown about all over the place due to how thin the squad was.
These are the next three genuine talents from our youth that have a high chance of breaking into the first team.
Hope they all have bigger roles this season.
What? Fellaini's one of the most important players for Jose. Periera needs to grow 6 inches to even have a chance. lol
I agree with you. Mourinho needs to find a way to give him minutes, it looks like we have a real talent in our hands.
He will be useful in this year's squad I think. He will be an alternative to Herrera, Pogba, Martial and Mata. Last year has shown us he has ambitions to be a good player for this club. His mentality sets him apart from the likes of Januzaj. Really believe in this kid.
Very talented, hope he has a role to play this season. Last seasons loan was definitely beneficial for him.
One of the players I look forward to see
I might be one a few but I think Herrera will be a full time holding midfielder in the coming season and Pereira could potentially play ahead of him with Pogba in a few matches.
Rotation with Herrera
He can play instead of Fellaini imo, in those games where we need creativity more than elbows. Pogba I assume will play further upfront in a more creative role so that leaves him and Herrera in midfield
If we don't buy a CDM of at least Fabinho's quality then I would play Herrera as a DLP and give Pereira a place alongside Pogba. He seems to have Mata's on the ball ability but with greater physicality.
There was an interview of him a couple of months back, where he said playing for Granada improved his defensive skills a lot.. Now he has more awareness about his defensive responsibilities.. Must be music to Mourinho's ears..
He also said Mourinho was in constant touch throughout the loan,so I think he has high hopes from him..
Watching him dribble past players is ridiculously entertaining. You tend to get one young player who just tears it up in pre-season, I predict it'll be him.
Not convinced he'll get the game time, personally. All his numbers will likely be fed to Carrick and Fellaini. Really hope I'm wrong, because I think he's excellent.
He's excellent, give him chances.
I really hope he does succeed with us, it's been a while since a young midfielder have managed to come through ranks and be consistent.
