Belgian-born Brazilian star Pereira played with Fred during the last three pre-season games in the United States and has taken it upon himself to support his fellow countryman while he adapts to life in Manchester.
“He's from the same country so I help him," Pereira told manutd.com. “I try to do my best to help him and all of his family that have arrived. I've tried to help him feel at home so he can play better and better and he feels comfortable. "
“He's a very good guy. He's settling in very well – he's trying to speak English, he's trying to adapt to his team-mates, so he's doing very well."
