Jose Mourinho admits he could be 'happier' with Manchester United transfer business

United have been on Aurier's trail for a while and are favourites to sign the Ivory Coast player

The Belgium-born Brazil Under-23 global spent last season with relegated Granada in LaLiga, but has now returned to the Red Devils and impressed during pre-season.

And Pereira says Lukaku has settled in well, adding: "There's a good atmosphere in the group and I'm already friends with [Romelu] Lukaku".

Matic, 29, has signed a three year deal with the club and this also comes with an option to extend the deal by one extra year.

A religious man, Pereira speaks Portuguese, French, Dutch, English and Spanish and has made 13 first-team appearances for United.

The Ivory Coast global was once regarded as one of the most exciting young right-backs in Europe so the 24-year-old would offer a long-term replacement for Antonio Valencia if United snapped him up this summer.

According to Marca reporter Chris Winterburn, the Special One only believes players are expensive if they are "going for inflated fees when they don't have the quality to match".


Chelsea enjoyed great success last term after switching to the new set-up under Antonio Conte at the start of last season as they went on to win the Premier League title.

Pereira is joined at Old Trafford by Belgium global Romelu Lukaku, who moved to Manchester United in a £75million deal from Everton.

"The plan is to have a good squad, not a good team", said United's manager.

"And we have important players injured for a long time, they're going to be back just by the end of the year, so our squad is not so big".

United face Real Madrid on Tuesday in the Uefa Super Cup in Macedonia, following their Europa League victory last season.
