Brazilian Youngster Pereira Signs United Contract Extension

Brazilian prospect, Andreas Pereira has signed a contract extension at Manchester United which will keep him at the Premier League club until 2018, with an option to a further one-year extension.

Pereira joined the Old Trafford club in 2011 after impressing then-manager Sir Alex Ferguson during the Manchester United Premier Cup.

He has since earned promotion into the club’s first team, after he was selected by manager Louis van Gaal for a League Cup game against MK Dons early this season.

“I am at the right club to continue my development as a player and to learn as much as I can,” the teenage midfielder said.

“I am pleased to have signed my new contract. I would like to thank the manager for giving me the opportunity to join the first-team squad. I made my Premier League debut against Tottenham Hotspur and to play at Old Trafford in front of so many fans was a dream come true.”

Van Gaal said: “Andreas has all the attributes to become an integral part of the first team; great natural talent coupled with a good appetite to learn.

“I am pleased with his progression so far this season and look forward to working with him to develop his talent even further.”
