Pereira confirms Man Utd move

Highly-rated PSV Eindhoven prospect Andreas Pereira has confirmed he will join Manchester United in the New Year.

Pereira, 15, has represented Belgium at youth level and agreed a deal to move to Old Trafford in 2012, despite interest from other clubs in the Premier League and around Europe.

The Brazilian-born midfielder revealed that a one-on-one chat with United manager Sir Alex Ferguson played a key role in his decision.

"I knew that PSV had given me my chance, but Manchester United is obviously a great club," Pereira told VoetbalPrimeur. "Other British clubs were interested. I thought about it, but Manchester United is a dream club for me.

"I have been a few times to Manchester United to have a look. I got a tour and spoke with Sir Alex Ferguson. Being a 15-year-old and being able to talk with him is great!"

PSV signed Pereira from Belgian side Lommel United, after he moved to Belgium as a youngster. He is widely regarded as one of the finest players in his age group in Europe.
