Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a reminder of his quality by scoring a stunning free-kick for Flamengo on Wednesday night.

The 25-year-old returned to Brazil on loan with Flamengo at the start of the season after being informed by Solskjaer that his playing time would be limited at Old Trafford.

Pereira was a regular during Solskjaer’s first full season at the Theatre of Dreams, making 25 Premier League appearances and scoring twice.

It’s unlikely that the midfielder has a long-term future at the club but he’s done his chances no harm by scoring a stunning free-kick in Flamengo’s 3-1 win against Juventude.

The former Brazil international smashed a free-kick into the top corner from all of 30 yards and the victory helps Flamengo keep the pressure on Atletico Mineiro, who have an 11-point lead at the top but have played two more matches.

Pereira’s United contract runs until 2023 and the Red Devils had hopes to cash in on him by now after his loan spell with Lazio last term.

The Serie A club had an option to buy the midfielder for £28m but they declined the opportunity.
