Andreas Pereira: Valencia will make me better for Man Utd

Valencia midfielder Andreas Pereira retains hope of a future with parent club Manchester United.

Pereira is on-loan this season at Los Che.

He said of his relationship with United manager Jose Mourinho: "It was difficult because he told me I had to stay and I wanted to play and get more minutes.

"I never want to leave United but I want to play as well. In the end it will make me a better player and I will be that better player at United.

"I wanted to go somewhere and play a regular season.

"Last year I did it and I felt stronger for it. The United staff recognised it [in pre-season]."
