Pereira caught the attention of supporters with some accomplished performances on Man United’s pre-season tour of the United States, as well as turning a few heads in the U20 World Cup in the summer.
United snapped up the 19-year-old from PSV back in 2012, but the Brazilian has only made two senior appearances since coming to Old Trafford.
PSV are keen on bringing Pereira back to familiar surroundings in order to further his development as a footballer through regular involvement with the Dutch champions.
Pereira would undoubtedly benefit hugely from van Gaal’s tutelage. Additionally, being around the senior squad would further help the youngster mature and grow in confidence.
