Manchester United manager is looking at a number of signings to take the club to the next level and must be fast about it given the manner in which bitter rivals, Manchester City are going about their business in the yet-to-be officially open transfer window.
Pep Guardiola has been hurt by his team’s finish last season, and has signed Bernardo Silva, while moves for Mendy, Kyle Walker, and Ederson are nearing completion. According to ESPN via Ligafinancial, Mourinho has sanctioned the return of Brazilian play-maker, Andreas Pereira back to the Theatre of Dreams for next season.
Peirera, 21, played on loan at Granada in the Spanish topflight last season, and has been touted for a possible return to the Old Trafford first team in pre-season.
He is expected to join up with the squad for The Tour of America, which will see his club play the likes of LA Galaxy, Real Madrid and Barcelona. While on loan in Spain, the player confirmed that he was in regular contact with Jose and his assistant, Rui Faria with the pair encouraging him not to give up in what was a disastrous season for Granada, as they got relegated into the Segunda Division.
Peirera is wanted by Jose as the Manchester United loaneee dazzled in the colours of Granada, offering abundant creativity and bundle of tricks.
The Brazil U-23s international is a central attacking midfielder who plays very well behind the striker to draw out defenders and pick out excellent passes, in the mould of Philippe Coutinho. He scored 5 times in 37 matches in the just concluded season.
