Andreas Pereira: Focusing on club football ahead of his international career

The 18-year-old has previously represented Belgium at youth level, but is also eligible for Brazil and he met with their Under-20s boss Alexandre Gallo recently to discuss that possibility.

However, the attacking midfielder insists that his priority at the minute is making a name for himself in domestic football before worrying about the international stage.

"I want to focus on Manchester United in the first place. I haven't made my mind up," he told Belgian newspaper Het Belang van Limburg.

"If I ever have the chance to play for Brazil, I won't hesitate. But I've always played in the Belgian national youth ranks.

"And I did feel at home there, in contrary to what's claimed in Brazil. The door's not closed yet."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
