Pereira: I’m ready for Manchester United

On-loan Granada playmaker Andreas Pereira claims he is ready to return to Manchester United if manager Jose Mourinho feels he needs him.

The 20-year-old academy graduate has been ever-present for the Nazaries since making a season-long loan to Spain in August.

Following his goal in the 2-1 win over Sevilla on Saturday, Pereira revealed he is in contact with Mourinho.

"We are always in contact and we talk after my games," he told Goal. "If Manchester United needs me, I am always ready.

"The experience here in Spain has been very good, even though the club has struggled a bit. But I think we have been improving game by game and the last two games it showed that we are on the right track.

"I came here to play games, get a good experience playing in a top league and then to go back [to United] and to fight for a spot in the squad."

Pereira featured 11 times under former Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal last season, scoring once.
