Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho doesn’t want Andreas Pereira sold.

The Manchester Evening News says it is understood his demotion from the first-team squad had led to his representatives exploring the possibility of a permanent move away from the club he joined from PSV Eindhoven in 2011.

But Mourinho and United do not want to lose a player who is still only 20 years old.

It is believed he has been reminded that while there are no available places in the first-team squad this season, that will not always be the case.

He has been linked with a loan move to Middlesbrough with Aitor Karanka believed to be interested in the Brazilian’s services ahead of the campaign.

United would also prefer Pereira to gain experience in the Premier League, shunning interest from Spain and Holland.

However, a portion of the Old Trafford board hopes he will accept a loan move and will be able to improve his game and slot back into United’s side when a place opens up on the first-team.

A number of the youth team players who are on the fringes of the first-team have been allowed to leave the club this summer.

Donald Love nad Paddy McNair were the latest to join the exodus after they completed a permanent switch to Sunderland.

Adnan Januzaj has also joined the Black Cats, but the move is a temporary one until the end of the 2016/17 campaign.

The Brazilian, however, has indicated he is keen to remain at Old Trafford and continue training with the first-team and use any opportunity that comes his way during the domestic cup competitions to show the manager that he belongs with the first-team.

“I want to show the manager, to show the people around the club, to show the players that I can help this season,” Pereira said in an interview with the Daily Mail.

“It’s very important for me. I want to show this in training and just keep working hard,” he added.
