Man United winger Andreas Pereira has said that he wants to stay at Valencia for the rest of the season rather than go back to Man United this January, according to the Daily Mail.
The youngster is currently on a season-long loan to Valencia, with United having the option to recall him this January. He is enjoying life in Valencia so far this season having worked his way into being a regular for the Spanish side, starting all of their last eight games, and he is now keen to stay with them till the end of the season.
He believes he has benefited from the playing time he has been afforded at Valencia after struggling for game time at Old Trafford since breaking into the first team in 2014.
‘For me [staying here] would be a very good option and would help my game.
‘I am happy at this club and want to continue here, I always wanted to stay here until June.
‘I know United have an option to take me back in January but right now my mind is focused here.’ He told Super Deporte
‘It’s important that I continue to grow and improve at this stage of my career.
‘If I returned to join Manchester United in the middle of the season it would be tough for me to improve like I am now.
‘I always knew that I’d made the right decision in the summer and my only aim is to continue here.
‘Everything is going well and everyone wants to stay.‘
Valencia are on a high this season, presently occupying the 3rd position above Real Madrid and just two points below second position.
The young Brazilian’s development will be better served if he stays on loan and accumulate more game time in my opinion, with Mourinho not likely to entrust him with game time should he be recalled as he navigates an already tough season.
United fans what do you think? Should we recall him or leave him on loan?
