It's been a strange old season for Manchester United.

While the Red Devils look set to finish second in the Premier League and have an FA Cup final vs Chelsea to look forward to, there's also been a lot of discontent among the supporters.

They've often been critical of Jose Mourinho's playing style and team selections, while the debacles surrounding Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw did little to help the manager's cause.

Nevertheless, after Saturday's 2-1 victory over Spurs in the semi-final, United fans appear to be rallying behind Mourinho and could finally see why he has persevered with January signing Alexis Sanchez over Anthony Martial.

Fans are still aware that the forward line will need some bolstering in the summer, but they seem to be happy with how the trio of Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku are operating.

United look as if they will sign big in the summer in attacking areas, with a number of players also set to leave.

And one man who looks a dead certain to be on that list is Andreas Pereira, who's currently on-loan at Valencia.

For years, the Brazilian forward was held in high stead by fans, with many wanting to see him given a chance in the first-team.

However, what he has said about his chances at United while over in Spain is just rather sad. 


“It was a good experience. I now know what it’s like to fight for a place. It strengthens you physically and mentally when you play week in, week out at the highest level. You don’t learn anything on the bench,” he told Sport/Foot.

“However, I know I can’t claim a starting spot at Manchester United. All you have to do is look at the bench.

"My future at Valencia depends on Manchester United. All the options remain open, but I don’t want to be loaned again. I’ve shown what I can do. This summer, I want clarity. I want to be able to stay at a club for two to three years in order to build something.”

For a player to come out and say he knows he can't claim a starting spot is pretty damning.

You have to question his attitude towards United after such comments, with a manager like Mourinho certain to have zero sympathy with the young Brazilian.
