Time for Andreas Pereira to Make his Mark at Manchester United

We are nearing the end of preparations as Manchester United fly back home to wrap things up ahead of their Friday night fixture against Leicester City next week. United's camp was a lot happier after the final game - as they edged a Real Madrid - who are admittedly in their nascent stages of pre-season - in Miami, Florida.

Why Fred would be a good signing for Manchester United

Manchester United made progress this season and finished 2nd in the Premier League. This was their highest finish since Sir Alex Ferguson retired and it is important that they have a positive summer to build on the current foundations. They have been active in the transfer window in recent years, with big name signings such as Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku arriving at Old Trafford.
