Biography

Andreas Pereira is a talented, creative midfielder who joined Manchester United from PSV Eindhoven in 2012.

The skilful youngster completed a season-long loan move to Valencia in September 2017, having also spent the previous campaign in Spain with Granada. Although the latter were relegated from La Liga, he gained plenty of experience playing in a variety of roles - assets now in evidence at Valencia. Pereira first signed professional terms with United at the start of 2013, the year in which he captained the club’s Milk Cup-winning team in Northern Ireland and was voted Player of the Tournament. By being involved with the Under-21 squad at the end of 2012/13, it was clear that, even then, he was held in very high regard within the Aon Training Complex. And the young schemer scored on his first full appearance at that level, curling home the winner in the clash against West Ham at Old Trafford. Comfortable in possession, he is also an excellent set-piece taker and had an impressive record at international level for the Belgium youth team, before opting to represent the country of his parents’ birth, Brazil. He did so at the Under-20 World Cup in 2015 and scored a superb strike for the South Americans against Serbia. By then, he had played twice for United’s first team as a substitute – his debut in the League Cup defeat away to MK Dons in August 2014 and his maiden league outing in the home victory over Spurs in March 2015. Pereira registered 11 first-team appearances in 2015/16 and notched his first senior goal, with a delicious free-kick against Ipswich Town in the League Cup.
