Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is keen to remain at Old Trafford but would consider a move to Paris Saint-Germain should United fail to assure him of his future at Old Trafford, according to the player's father.

Pereira, 19, is out of contract at the end of the season, with talks over a new deal for the player ongoing. Reports in January have suggested the player has already rejected an opening offer from Louis van Gaal's side.

L'Equipe claims PSG are now carefully monitoring the situation and are ready to make an offer for the United youngster should talks continue to stall.

Pereira's father, who also acts as the player's agent, has told PSG fan site Canal Supporters there has been no formal approach from the Ligue 1 champions but admits the French giants would be an ideal destination should United fail to tie up his future.

"We of course heard about this rumour," Pereira's father said, when asked of PSG's reported interest. "What I can say for now is that we have had no contact with PSG and we do not even know if the Parisian club has already contacted Manchester United.

"All I can say is that my son wants to play to progress and that, for this moment, is not the case. It is Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs in the world, buy if the club agree to a transfer this winter then yes, PSG would be a very good club for Andreas."

When asked of a possible move before the January transfer window closes, he added: "It is very difficult to say and to be honest, even we do not know. He is out of contract in six months, and it depends if United want to sell."

The Belgian-born Brazilian has trained with United's first team this season but has been limited to just one appearance, despite featuring on the substitutes' bench on a number of occasions.
