Andreas Pereira: 'I want to stay at Valencia'

It has been suggested in recent weeks that Jose Mourinho was considering bringing Pereira to Old Trafford in January as United included had an option to recall him at mid-season as part of the loan agreement.

Speaking to Spanish media outlet Super Deporte, Pereira made it clear that he was now focused on his endeavours at Valencia but noted that returning to Old Trafford served as a good option. "That was my intention when I came here".

He added: "I know that there is a clause in the contract [to be recalled] and now I have to wait to see".

"It is important that I am playing to grow, improve and help Valencia". But my mind is focused on Valencia and I want to stay here.

The Belgian has been on-loan with the La Liga side from Old Trafford since the start of the season.

However, the Andalusian club finished bottom of the standings and were relegated.

Cavaliers earn 11-seed in 39th straight NCAA Tournament appearance
Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin all secured bids to the national tournament, which begins Thursday. The Irish are 18-17-2 (.514) all-time in NCAA Championship play, which includes a 17-13-2 record under Clark.

When quizzed on whether he has been considering his future at United, Pereira said: "No, no".

"It gives me great pride and to hear those words is lovely", he said.

The 21-year-old has been in great form since moving to the Mestalla on loan over the summer, scoring one goal and racking up several assists in 10 appearances, five of which were from the substitutes' bench.

The 21-year-old was heavily involved in United's preparations for the 2017-18 campaign, but made a decision to join Valencia on loan in the latter stages of the summer transfer window.

Mourinho has formed a reputation for failing to offer younger players much of a chance in his teams, although Pereira is one prospect he might be wise to offer an opportunity. All that we are achieving is because he has built this group. He tells us with clarity what one in particular has to do as well as what the team has to do at a given moment. I think that, as we are now, everyone want to stay here. "It would be very hard to return to United at mid-season and continue with the same evolution that I'm having now here".

Valencia head into Sunday's game at Espanyol unbeaten in La Liga and on an eight-game winning run in the league, which is their best ever start to the competition.
