Picture: Andreas Pereira wearing new kit number during Man United training

Manchester United’s pre-season tour of America is well underway now, and we’re finally closing in on our first game. That takes place against the LA Galaxy, but yesterday, Jose Mourinho was putting his players through their paces in training.

Amongst the group was Andreas Pereira. A supremely talented attacking midfielder who spent last season out on loan with Granada in Spain.

Now, he’ll be looking to make an impact on Jose Mourinho’s first team plans. The Brazilian took to Instagram to upload a photo of himself, alongside teammate Joel Pereira, meeting star Julia Roberts.

If you look closely, you can see that the number on his shirt is now #15. Before the aforementioned loan move, he wore #44 for Manchester United.

Have a look at Pereira’s Instagram post here:

Whilst out on tour, the more established players have indeed been wearing their regular numbers, so this could well mean that the 21-year-old does have a new jersey number.

Not only that though, the #15 indicates to me that he could well be a key part of Mourinho’s plans for this coming season; which would be wonderful.

This is a man who is capable of making a real impact upon proceedings this season, and I hate to use the term, but it could well feel ‘like a new signing’.
