Old Trafford want highly-rated youngster.
Manchester United have won the race to sign PSV Eindhoven’s Brazilian-born midfielder Andreas Pereira.
The 15-year-old is regarded as one of the finest players for his age in Europe with most of the elite sides keen on him. But Pereira is set to move to Old Trafford next year.
He said: ‘I knew that PSV had given me my chance, but Manchester United is obviously a great club.
‘Other British clubs were interested. I thought about it, but Manchester United is a dream club for me.
‘I have been a few times to Manchester United to have a look.
‘I got a tour and spoke with Sir Alex Ferguson. Being a 15-year-old and being able to talk with him is great.’ he told VoetbalPrimeur.
Pereira moved to Belgium as a child and has been capped at youth level. PSV signed him from local side Lommel United but United look set to bring him to Old Trafford.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s push for more young Brazilian talent continues with this latest coup.
The Man United boss for the last few years has been concentrating a lot of his scouting network onto South American talent and has come up with a few gems.
Despite Anderson being inconsistent, Fergie has found the Da Silva twins and the excellent Javier Hernandez.
Now it looks like the Scot has found another talent in Andreas Pereira, as Ferguson aims to keep United at the top of English football for the next 25 years.
