Manchester United starlet unsure of future under Mourinho
Manchester United youngster Andreas Pereira is unsure if he has a future at the club. The Brazilian youth international, who has spent this season on loan at La Liga club Granada remains keen on securing a future at his parent club, but knows that a his chances of being given a big role under Jose Mourinho are far from certain.
“I spoke to Mourinho about it. I was honest with him and he was honest with me. I like this about him. He said: ‘If you stay, you’ll get a game, you’ll play in the cup’, but that’s not what I needed and he thought that as well, so it was better to go on loan. I told him I would go anywhere he thought fit. He would like me to go to Fulham but it didn’t go through and then I had this option. Spain is my kind of football, I was happy Granada were interested. The manager said: ‘Look, if you go there and play all season, that’s very important’.
“I would love to go back and play at Old Trafford, but if they say: ‘Andreas, we would like to loan you out again,’ or ‘we don’t want you any more,’ I don’t know what I am going to do. But the focus now is Granada.”
