The Brazilian youth international is one of United's top talents.

Manchester United are certainly a club with a reputation for bringing through top young talent. The club have produced the likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, David Beckham and the list goes on.

At the moment one player that Manchester United have a lot of hope for is midfielder Andreas Pereira. The 19-year-old was born in Belgium and arrived at Manchester United in 2011 from PSV Eindhoven.

A Brazilian Under-20 international he has started to make his way into the United first-team.

He scored his first goal for the club this season in the Capital One Cup against Ipswich Town and is clearly a player that Louis van Gaal thinks highly of.

In fact, that was clear to see in Manchester United training yesterday.

The Dutchman was spotted sharing a cuddle with the teenager who will be hoping to get some more first-team game time this weekend when Manchester United take on West Ham at Old Trafford.

Even if it is not this weekend, there is no doubt that Pereira will soon be featuring more and more for the United first XI.
