Andrea Pereira has been working hard during the winter break whilst on loan at Grenada.
The Brazilian was loaned out to the Spanish side back in August after failing to secure a place in Jose Mourinho‘s first team squad at Manchester United.
He has impressed many with a series of enterprising performances in Spain, making 15 appearances and scoring his first goal in a 2-1 win over Sevilla earlier this month.
Pereira was pictured putting in the hard yards at the gym in preparation for the new year.

Promising youngsters can often harbour the wrong kind of attitude, perhaps lacking the levels of dedication required to succeed at this level, with bad performances and bad results impacting on them harder than other senior figures.
But this is not the case with Pereria: he finds himself in a depleted Grenada side destined for relegation, surrounded by teammates sapped of confidence. Those that have watched him this season will know that, for all his attacking enterprise, some performances have been way off the mark.
That said, the youngster appears determined to work hard and improve – even in the face of continual set-backs. Such a mindset will undoubtedly serve him well upon his return to Manchester in the summer.
