Man Utd Starlet Turned Down Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool & Spurs
Andreas Pereira revealed he turned down some of Europe’s biggest clubs to sign with Manchester United last week.
The gifted Belgian teen, 15, is joining the Premiership champions from PSV Eindhoven, and it’s reported he chose the Red Devils ahead of the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Newcastle United. Tottenham, AC Milan, Villarreal and Anderlecht are also believed to have made contact with Pereira’s management, but without making any offer.
Speaking about his move, Pereira admited he was discussing terms with several clubs, but couldn’t resist the chance to join United:
“PSV knew I was talking with other clubs and respects my choice,” said Pereira. “PSV gave me my chance, but Manchester United is obviously a great club. Every young footballer would be proud to get such an offer.”
The Brazilian born playmaker comes highly rated from PSV who will be disappointed at losing their youngster at such an early age.
