Andreas Pereira is desperate to prove his worth to Jose Mourinho this season after expressing his delight at returning to Manchester United.
The 21-year-old Brazilian has been taken on the club’s pre-season tour of the United States, having spent last season on a season-long loan with La Liga side Granada.
Pereira was unable to prevent the Andalusians suffering relegation from Spain’s top flight despite impressing on an individual level – form he is determined to continue at Old Trafford.
And the versatile midfielder has spoken of his determination to make an impression on Mourinho.
“I am very happy that I am back, and I can be part of this team,” Pereira told MUTV.
“I will try to do my best to stay here, get an important role for the season, to help my team-mates and to impress the manager.
“It boosts me that the people here trust the young players. I am very happy for the young players and I want to be a part of this team as well.”
