Jose Mourinho may have to focus a bit closer to home before chalking out what business to do in this transfer window.
Yes, that’s the advice from United fans after Andreas Pereira’s brilliant display against Real Madrid on Saturday.
Despite his side Granada being destroyed 5-0, Pereira was certainly a class act. He touched the ball 58 times, and even completed 87 percent of his passes.

He dribbled the ball past the opponent five times, more than the rest of his starting eleven managed combined.
Those United fans who were lucky to watch the match saw enough evidence of promise to suggest the youngster could be a hit under Mourinho next season if handed a fair opportunity.
I Wish Mourinho recalls @andrinhopereira back

Hopefully Andreas Pereira comes back from loan and completely tears it up in midfield. Love the guy. Just needs his chance.

One fan even believes he could replace Carrick.
Seen a few tweets about Andreas Pereira being converted into a CM at Granada. Maybe he can be a long term replacement for Michael Carrick?

Some even think that any move for Griezmann or James Rodriguez is unnecessary

I know Granada lost yesterday but Andreas Pereira was phenomenon for them as usual. That kind is such baller in the midfield

Pereira’s first team debut was against Ipswich Town in the League Cup under Louis van Gaal, after he impressed for the under 23s.
He made only one appearance under Mourinho, when he scored against Wigan in a pre-season friendly, and even travelled to China for the pre-season tour, but was sent to Spain afterwards.
