Andreas Pereira sends message to Memphis Depay and shows he's working hard for U20 World Cup

A Manchester United youngster is hoping for a big summer and surely an even bigger upcoming domestic campaign.

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has taken to Twitter to post a picture of himself training with Brazil’s under-20 side ahead of their World Cup campaign, while he also took the time to welcome new signing Memphis Depay to Old Trafford.

Pereira will not be involved with United for the end of the current campaign as he prepares for the upcoming international tournament. But having recently signed a new deal at the club he will no doubt be hoping that next season is the one when he really makes his breakthrough.

Pereira has only featured twice for United’s first-team to date but manager Louis van Gaal appears to rate him highly having offered him a new long-term deal this season.

As for Depay, the Dutchman completed his medical on Monday with his €34.7million move from PSV Eindhoven agreed and set to go through officially when the transfer window opens in the summer.

Before that, Depay will be able to rest after a fine season in Holland and Pereira will be hoping to make a name for himself alongside some of the world’s best young talent.
