Manchester United forward keen to ignore PSG interest, sidesteps comparison to Memphis Depay

Manchester United’s Andreas Pereira has expressed his desire to make his mark at Old Trafford, amidst sustained interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

The French giants were reportedly keen on the player during the summer, according to Le 10 Sport, and the same source report that they retain an interest in the youngster.

Speaking back in January, Canal-Supporters as per Le 10 Sport, the player’s father insisted that while there had been no contact with the French champions, PSG would “be a very good club for Andreas.”

In an interview with Goal, however, the 19-year-old has iterated his desire to thrive at United and become a big success at Old Trafford.

“I think this is normal. We have the best players in the world so I just have to be patient. I would have my chance this year, I know. I spoke with the manager, so everything is going well for me at the moment,” he began.

“For me, Manchester United is the biggest club,” Pereira continued, “I came here to play with the first team and win trophies. With Manchester United I want to win. I therefore do not pay attention to what happens in other clubs, I’m totally focused on Manchester United. ”

However, the forward—who has represented both Belgium and Brazil at youth level, and is still eligible to represent either nation’s senior side—opted not to discuss comparisons with one of United’s star men, new recruit Memphis Depay.
