Andreas Pereira put in a brilliant performance in Granada’s 5-0 defeat against Real Madrid this weekend.
It’s incredible to see how far he’s come since his wonderful free-kick against Ipswich Town on his senior debut. His loan move to Granada has served as an excellent stepping stone in his career and there’s no doubt that he’ll slot back into the team once he returns to Old Trafford.
Granada are a side currently sapped of confidence and their 5-0 bashing at the Bernabeu proves that, but Pereira is a real gem, with the ability to get the ball forward, link up play and completely change the game.
There were doubts over whether the loan move would help him develop but it’s clear to see he’s come on quite a lot since the start of the campaign. Here’s his highlights from the match against Real Madrid:
United and Brazil have a rising star in hands. Superb close control and ability of ball retention under pressure.
