All the rumours about Andreas Periera moving away from Manchester United have been put aside as the young Brazilian extends his current deal which is set to expire this summer.

Periera was expected be the next big thing in United ranks, however for some reason the club stalked on extending his contract which was set to expire this summer. As a result many feared that he may also leave the club just like a former young academy product – Paul Pogba.

The Brazailian under-20 international is also not far from finding suitors. Various reports linked him with a move to either PSG or Juventus. But, the youngster fended off all the rumours to extend his contract with United until June 2018.

“I am pleased to have signed my new contract. I would like to thank the manager for giving me the opportunity to join the first-team squad. I made my Premier League debut against Tottenham Hotspur and to play at Old Trafford in front of so many fans was a dream come true” Pereira said.

“I am at the right club to continue my development as a player and to learn as much as I can. I want to thank my family and God for the opportunity he has given me” he added.

Louis van Gaal added: “Andreas has all the attributes to become an integral part of the first team; great natural talent coupled with a good appetite to learn. I am pleased with his progression so far this season and look forward to working with him to develop his talent even further.”

Pereira, 19, has made two first-team appearances this season and is the latest youngster to commit his future to United. Centre-backs Tyler Blackett and Paddy McNair signed deals until 2017 earlier this season.
