Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has revealed the reason behind his decision to snub clubs who were interested in signing him during the transfer window in the summer.

Andreas Pereiera talked about Manchester United and how close he was to leaving the club in his latest interview as monitored by the Manchester Evening News (MEN).

According to him, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was the major reason behind him staying at the club.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been able to take his game to the next level and move him on from the Jose Mourinho era.

Andreas Pereiera struggled a lot under Jose Mourinho who rarely gave him an opportunity to impress in the famous shirt of Manchester United.

The Belgium-born Brazilian international has been at Manchester United since the age of 16.

He has been at the club for around seven years though the Brazilian midfielder was sent out on loan to Spanish La Liga club Valencia two seasons ago where he impressed a great deal for the Los Che before returning to Old Trafford last summer.

Andreas Pereiera made just 22 appearances for Manchester United in all competitions last season but this term is a lot different under Solskjaer as he has already made 20 appearances as at December.
