Man Utd Wonderkid Praises £91M Duo’s Training Ground Displays

Manchester United starlet Andreas Pereira has pointed to the club’s summer signings Angel Di Maria and Ander Herrera as two of the better performers in training, as reported by the Daily Express.

Di Maria moved to Man Utd from Real Madrid, with the Red Devils breaking the record outlay for a British club by paying £59.7 million for the player.

Herrera did not come cheap either, with the Old Trafford club having to match his release clause to push through a transfer.

They paid £32 million to Athletic Bilbao for his signature.

Both have impressed since the new Premier League season kicked off, with the duo posting a combined total of five goals and four assists.

Di Maria has been adjudged as the best of the lot, winning both the Player and Goal of the Month awards at Man Utd.

Pereira, who has been involved with the first team, has said the two have impressed considerably in training.

He said: “Everyone’s been really good but the best in training, for me, is Angel Di Maria. He’s very good in training as well as in matches.

“I also admire Ander Herrera for the way he plays in my position but also the way he speaks to the other players.

 

“I can think back, a couple of weeks ago, to when Di Maria scored an unbelievable goal.

“We did some finishing after training with the forwards and he scored a brilliant strike.

“He controlled it and bounced the ball into the top corner. It was incredible.”

Another Pogba? Man Utd Could Lose Starlet After Not Offering New Deal

Manchester United risk another Paul Pogba situation after it was revealed that young midfield starlet Andreas Pereira has not been offered a new deal by the Old Trafford club, as reported by the Daily Express.

Pogba has come to symbolise one of the more significant mistakes of Alex Ferguson’s later regime at the Manchester club, with a lack of first team opportunities and an undervalued contract offer combining to cause his departure and move to Serie A side Juventus.

The French international has emerged as one of the best midfielders in Europe, something that has caused incredible consternation among Man Utd fans, given their lack of quality midfielders in recent years.

Pereira was included in Louis van Gaal’s squad for the game against Queens Park Rangers, which Man Utd won 4-0.

Despite this, the club have not made any move to tie him down to another deal, despite the fact that his contract expires at the end of the season.

He said: “They haven’t contacted me yet, but Van Gaal told me to stay calm.

“He wants to give me a chance because I have plenty of talent. When he arrived at the club, I talked with him. He always does so.

“It’s not true that [he doesn’t like Brazilian players], he always treated me in a normal way.”

Man Utd Look To Avoid Paul Pogba Repeat By Tying 18-Year-Old To New Deal – reports

Manchester United are hoping to avoid a repeat of the situation that saw Paul Pogba leave the club on a free transfer by offering Andreas Pereira a new deal with the club, after his surprise inclusion on the bench against Queens Park Rangers this weekend, as reported by the Daily Star.

The 18 year old took a place on the Old Trafford club’s bench this weekend, but the club have been recently burned by young talents leaving the club as a result of being unwilling to sign a new deal.

Pogba departed the club having complained about a lack of first team opportunities under Alex Ferguson, and he has since gone on to establish himself as one of the best midfielders in world football, helping Juventus to a succession of trophies since signing for them.

Pereira has only a year remaining on his current contract, and the club are worried that he will depart for nothing at the end of that.

He is the son of Brazilian player Marcos Pereira, and joined the Manchester club from PSV Eindhoven in 2012.
