Manchester United starlet Andreas Pereira has given his strongest indication yet that his future remains at Old Trafford.
Pereira, who on 30 April was named in the Brazil squad for this summer's Under-20 World Cup, is out of contract at the end of the 2014-15 season.
The club and the player have been locked in a stalemate over a new deal for much of the season, with Paris-Saint Germain a possible option, according to the attacking midfielder's father.
Pereira, 19, has also revealed in recent months an offer from Juventus having spoken to former teammate Paul Pogba, who left Old Trafford in similar circumstances in 2012.
But amid reports suggesting the Belgian-born starlet is prepared to sign a new deal with United, the player has hinted he will remain at the club in order to take the "next step" in his career while discussing his progress this season.
Upon being nominated for Manchester United's Under-21 player of the year award, he told MUTV: "I think I am working very hard every day and doing my best on the pitch.
"Hopefully I can continue this form. I can play attacking midfield, on the left wing or right wing. I think these are my best positions and, to get everything out of myself, I have to play these positions.
"The coaches tell me I have to be further up the pitch because I can score goals as well. We have other players in our team who can do the more defensive jobs, I know I can get a chance [in the first team] and I want another chance and the next step."
Pereira made his first-team debut for United in the humiliating 4-0 League Cup defeat to MK Dons in September 2014 but had to wait until March before making his Premier League bow, coming off the bench in the 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur.
