Man Utd Beat Arsenal, Chelsea & Spurs To Sign Exciting Midfielder
Manchester United have beaten off stiff competition from rivals Arsenal, Chelsea & Spurs to sign exciting youngster Andreas Pereira from Dutch side PSV…
Manchester United’s uninspiring midfield has been exposed on several occasions this season, and despite the club sitting in a respectable second position, improvement is clearly needed.
While the signing of PSV’s 15 year-old attacking midfielder, Andreas Pereira, is not the marquee signing many Manchester United fans would have liked to see added to the midfield, it is yet another building block that Sir Alex Ferguson has added to his magnificent Old Trafford empire, built over and over again throughout the past 25 years of unrivalled success.
United managed to steal the youngster from underneath a number of high profile clubs’ noses, including Premier League rivals Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea as well as Italian giants, AC Milan. It seems Pereira, who was not able to sign a professional contract with PSV because of his young age, was impressed with the treatment he received from United, having several tours of Old Trafford as well as a meeting with Sir Alex himself. He said:
“I knew that PSV had given me my chance, but Manchester United is obviously a great club, other British clubs were interested. I thought about it, but Manchester United is a dream club for me. I have been a few times to Manchester United to have a look.”
“I got a tour and spoke with Sir Alex Ferguson. Being a 15-year-old and being able to talk with him is great!
Pereira is yet another promising young talent, described as the ‘best in the world for his age,’ who will no doubt be a huge part of a future United squad, slotting in alongside the likes of Paul Pogba, Ravel Morrison and Ryan Tunicliffe in United’s exciting system filled with potential stars.
Manchester United have had to move the impressive Wayne Rooney into the middle to make up for the lack of central midfield prowess, especially in the absence of several key player including another youngster who has managed to rise to the top, Tom Cleverley. January will see the arrival of the Brazilian-born Belgian Pereira, but do not be surprised to see United linked to a number of more established central midfielder’s too.
