Manchester United Loanee Andreas Pereira Scores Outrageous 30-Yard Free-Kick For Flamengo

Andreas Pereira gave Manchester United fans a glimpse of what they are missing on Wednesday evening with a piece of individual brilliance.

The 25-year-old midfielder, who is currently on a season-long loan at Brazilian side Flamengo after struggling to find first-team minutes at Old Trafford, has had somewhat of a resurgence in his native country.

So far, the United academy graduate has scored three goals for his new club, including a magnificent 30-yard free-kick in their Serie A clash against Juventude last night. You can check out that ridiculous finish below.

Here is another angle of his effort. Magnificent.

Pereira, who has previously spent three seasons away from United during loan spells at Granada, Valencia and Lazio, is certainly making an impression in Brazil as Flamengo try and close the 11 point gap at the top of Serie A.

The Rio de Janeiro club lifted the league trophy in 2019 and 2020 and, with the help of Manchester United's loanee, they are bidding to win a second Copa Libertadores title in three years against Palmeiras next month.

If he carries on scoring goals like this, then Flamengo will have a great chance of making history this season.

Those involved in the Brazilian are certainly impressed by Pereira's impact since arriving from Old Trafford in the summer.

"He plays more or less like Gerson, but he is much faster. He's also more dynamic than Gerson was," Flamengo legend Junior told Globo.

"He fights very hard, he comes from a school of play, the English game, in which you need to battle, and that might have been what was missing in this Flamengo team."

Pereira has, of course, shown glimpses of his talent in the famous red. In a pre-season friendly against Brentford in July, he took a page out of Paul Scholes' playbook by scoring an incredible 25-yard volley.

Do you think Andreas Pereira has a long term future at Manchester United?
