Andrea Pereira: Good enough for Man Utd?



Andreas Pereira Scout Report

The Story of the 2019/20 season has been centred on the fact that Jesse Lingard hasn’t been performing well enough to warrant his place in the Man Utd squad.

This has been further cemented with the fact that Bruno Fernandes arrived in January, showing exactly how to operate when sat behind the striker. The Fans want Lingard out & even Ole Gunnar has apparantly advised Jesse Lingard that he will be moving on.

Andreas Pereira has been on the receiving end of criticism himself, with many fans targeting him on twitter advising him to leave the club.

It doesn’t look great for Pereira, as when he has played he hasn’t really impressed. With Fernandes becoming a fan favorite, McTominay showing the passion for the badge and the fact that Fred is starting to earn his spot also.

I’ve not even started on Paul Pogba! As you can see although Man Utd don’t have huge depth, you’re not guaranteed a starting place.

We aren’t 100% sure currently when the Football will begin again, after being delayed due to the Corona Virus pandemic. However, I will be shocked to see Andreas Pereira at Man Utd when the next season begins.

In the January transfer window, Man Utd have shown their desire to win again, with the signing of Bruno Fernandes. Whilst it’s quite shocking they never got him the summer before, they finally sealed the deal.

Was this due to the fact they were slipping out of the Top 4 race? All we know, is that Bruno Fernandes has revitalised the squad. He is so good!

There’s one thing for sure, I can’t wait to see how Fernandes and Pogba fit in the same midfield. Whilst there are rumours of a Pogba return to Juventus, it would be ashame for him not to get a run of games beforehand! I can only think that having a midfield with that quality would be heaven for a striker…. assists galore.

Do you think Andreas Periera will stay at Manchester United?

Daniel James: Man Utd’s First Summer 2019 Signing



Manchester United have unveiled their first Summer signing, young winger Daniel James. After a poor 2018/19 Premier League campaign, conceding the most goals they have conceded in a long time, the world was expecting United to sign defenders, but they’ve started with more attackers.

Today we bring you the Daniel James Scout Report, which will identify previous stats, his playing style & how he fits in at Old Trafford.

Daniel James Scout Report

Daniel James made his professional debut for Swansea in February 2018, making 33 appearances in total and scoring 4 goals. He has also made 4 appearances for Wales, scoring on one occasion.

Life at Swansea

Daniel James signed for Swansea from Hull City, after scouts alerted them that he was showing fantastic glimpses of future potential. They snapped him up for £72,000 from Hull. After signing, he was sent to the Swansea development squad where they won the PDL L2 division & Premier League Cup.

In 2017, he was loaned out to Shrewsbury Town, in league one. This loan deal lasted just 2 months, when the player and club decided to terminate the contract. Daniel had failed to break into the first eleven, in fact he was only ever an unused substitute on one occasion.

First Team Involvement

Fast forward 6 months, Daniel James has now made his first team debut for Swansea, coming on as a substitute and bagging a goal in the Fa Cup. His Premier League debut arrived another 6 months later, in a bore draw against Birmingham City. He then became one of the best performers in the Swansea side, impressing on a weekly basis.

There was some controversy at the end of the January 2019 transfer window. Leeds United made a £10 million bid for the winger & Daniel advised the Swansea officials that he would like to leave the club. The bid was accepted and the medicals were completed, he also took part in the photoshoots & completed an announcement interview, ready to upload on the clubs website & social media.

However, there was disagreement between the clubs heirarchy, with Swansea upset about the structure of the £10 million deal. Leeds were waiting for Swansea to sign the deal off as completed, but they never did. This hurt Leeds manager Marcelo Biesla, who stated in an interview;

I don’t blame the club for missing out on James, but I’m not underlying the importance of the absence of James

On the 6th of June, Daniel James completed his medical and joined Manchester United, for a fee of £15 million. This was confirmed to be a 5 year deal, with an optional 1 year add-on also included. It’s unofficial yet whether Daniel will be utilised in the first team, reserve team, or even loaned out to progress further.

How will Daniel James fit in at Old Trafford?

Daniel James is a player which possesses fantastic pace, but he’s another Left Winger. This position is fully congested inside the club, with Rashford, Martial & Alexis Sanchez all competing for the same spot. It would be surprising to see James leapfrog the above names, as those stars would not take too fondly to sitting on the bench, for a long period.

He could be tested on the Right Wing, but he has only played once in this position for Swansea & didn’t really impress. I expect Daniel James to either go on loan, or play in the reserves and occasionally sit on the bench, ready to use his pace and dribbling skills late on in games, when the defence are tired & lacking concentration.

Was it a good signing?

Daniel James has the potential to be a good player, but the left winger wasn’t a problem area for United to begin with. Defensive signings are required, but there doesn’t seem to be much traction in regards to any action in that department. The Red Devils are playing hard-ball in a deal for Wan-Bissaka, which has the potential to take the whole transfer window. They need to get this deal over the line ASAP, before hunting for an elite centre back.
