Andreas Pereira has spent this season out on loan with La Liga side Granada. He has played well for the struggling team and he believes he is being tested by some of the tough teams he faces.
I’m playing well. I’m trying to do my job and am getting a lot of minutes. For me, it’s been very good playing here at a high level in Spain, in La Liga, every week. I get to train and focus hard for the games and, for me, it’s been very good. Unfortunately for the team, it’s been a bit difficult this season but we’re trying to get out of this situation as quickly as possible.
There are a lot of young players here so I think, in the beginning, it was very difficult as we didn’t know each other. After the second round of games, we played better and better as we got to know each other more and more. So I think things will get better for us in the last 10 games now.
It’s a very good league and a very high level. The football here is different than in England but it’s good to test yourself to see what level you are at and to improve every week.
Granada are currently seven points away from avoiding relegation with just 10 games left to play. Pereira confirms he’s dreaming of playing for United but all his focus is on helping Granada.
It’s my dream to play for United on a regular basis. It always has been a dream but now I’m here at Granada and I have to focus here to get us out of this situation. My dream will always be there and, next season, I will fight for it.
We have 10 games left here so I can’t say it’s impossible. It will be hard, of course, but I will try my best until the very last game and try to ensure we’re not relegated.
