Manchester United fans were absolutely delighted with Andreas Pereira‘s performance vs AC Milan as their pre-season tour rumbles on.
Jose Mourinho’s men drew for the third consecutive match in normal time and so had to decide the tie on penalties.
United ultimately got the win in a 9-8 penalty shootout that seemed to last forever and Pereira even grabbed two for himself.
The midfielder was assured in possession and impressed supporters with his range of passing once again in what is starting to become his pre-season.
Andreas is almost forcing Mourinho into making him a part of the club’s first team plans and it’s exactly the kind of thing every youngster hopes to do.
If Andreas Pereira was a new signing we'd all be going crazy about how good he is! The lad is fantastic and cannot be ignored next season. Needs to be heavily involved with the first team from day one#MUFC

The Belgian won’t have the reassurances of being a regular name in the starting XI but he certainly has the quality that’s necessary for the squad.
Whether Jose chooses to use him or send him out on loan is yet to be seen but the feeling is if it’s not this season, it won’t happen ever.
Pereira is on the lookout for establishing himself in a club’s first team and if it doesn’t happen at Manchester United, he’ll surely look elsewhere.
