Andreas Pereira Produces Beautiful Piece Of Skill Vs. Real Madrid
Andreas Pereira has no time for pressing.
The Belgium-born player enjoyed a superb pre-season with Manchester United, producing brilliance in the middle of the park out in the States.
He bagged a sublime goal against Liverpool, converting a free-kick in spectacular fashion.

And he continued his heroics, last night, against Real Madrid as United beat the Champions League holders 2-1, thanks to goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera.
However, one of the main takeaways was Pereira's beautiful piece of skill.
He received the ball with Real Madrid players pressing him hard. Though he wonderfully evaded their press with a silky turn, before passing the ball to Luke Shaw.

Pereira's performances got United fans talking. Here's some reaction from Twitter:
Genuinely feel Andreas Pereira can become a terrific player in time, as he ages and matures. He's 22 now. for example, Modric at the same age was still at Dinamo Zagreb, Lampard at West Ham, Zidane at Bordeaux.- James Stretford (@Jamesstretford) July 26, 2018
Andreas Pereira is so special. He's basically like a new signing for us. If we don't allow him to play regularly and show the world his potential, I'll never forgive the club.- The Man Utd Way (@TheManUtdWay) July 28, 2018
If Scott McTominay gets more game time than Andreas Pereira next season, then José Mourinho has completely lost it. The guy is class.- Ryan. :red_circle: (@Vintage_Utd) July 28, 2018
Andreas Pereira oozes class. He reminds me of Modric. Deserves a chance in the first team. Fact.- James. :red_circle: (@mufcszn) July 22, 2018
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- Mark Goldbridge (@markgoldbridge) July 26, 2018
As he did last year, Andreas Pereira looks great at DM for United. His movement to always give the centre-backs a passing option is really smart and his use of the ball is great. Always positive and doesn't hold on to the ball too long- Ryan Baldi (@RyanBaldiFW) July 28, 2018
Will the 22-year-old be kept on at the club for the new season? Watch this space.
