Manchester United are clearly doing all they can to stick with Louis van Gaal at this moment in time, despite awful results and performances on the field of play. However his position may once again have been weakened, as he has now blocked a loan move away for a frustrated starlet.
Andreas Pereira has recently been unhappy due to a lack of first-team football, and hinted that a loan move would be best for the good of his career, however it looks like he is here to stay.
According to the Daily Mail, Louis van Gaal has blocked any approaches from clubs who want to loan 20-year old Pereira, which seems a bit daft to me.
At this point in the season it makes sense to let him go out and get some regular football, because honestly, I cannot see him playing a whole lot for United from now until the end of the season.
