Youth career

Andreas is an attacking midfielder who joined Manchester United with an already rapidly growing reputation from PSV Eindhoven in the 2011/12 season. He's proven himself comfortable in possession and is something of a long range expert having scored some excellent goals from open play and set pieces.

Andreas was given the captaincy for the 2013 Milk Cup and guided Manchester United to victory in the tournament whilst also being crowned as its best player. Manchester United have pushed his progress in 2013/14 as he only featured 6 times for the Under-18 team but became a regular for the Under-21 team. He scored the all important goal for Manchester United's Under-21 side at Anfield to take them to the Under-21 League final. He'll be looking to improve the consistency of his performances and influence on games as he leaves the Academy behind in the 2014/15 season.

Andreas made his first team debut, coming on as a half time substitute for Saidy Janko away to Milton Keynes Dons in the 2nd Round of the 2014/15 League Cup.

Andreas scored his first goal for the first team against Ipswich Town in the Capital One Cup in September 2015.

Despite impressing in pre-season, Andreas joined Granada on loan for the 2016/17 season.


Andreas has represented Belgium at Under-15, Under-16 and Under-17 level. Despite being Belgian born, his father is from Brazil and he's made no secret of his desire to represent the South American country. In May 2014, he was called up to the Brazilian Under-20 team for the first time.
