PHOTO: Manchester United's teenage prospect Andreas Pereira with two Bayern stars

Manchester United youngster snapped with Bayern heroes.

Manchester United youngster Andreas Pereira has been catching up with two Brazilian compatriots.

The 18-year-old, who was born in Belgium, posted a photo on his social media pages alongside Bayern Munich's Dante and Rafinha.

Bayern are in England to take on Manchester City this evening, and Pereira no doubt had a few strong words of encouragement for the duo.

Pereira is on the fringes of the United set up, pictured in first team training with Louis van Gaal's stars, and featuring as a substitute in the League Cup loss to MK Dons.

He has seven appearances at under-21 level this season, scoring just the once.

Perhaps of minor concern is his contract being set to expire in June 2015. With the Bayern connections, United will not want to risk losing out on him as they did with Paul Pogba two seasons ago.
