Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira has revealed why defying manager Jose Mourinho to leave Old Trafford on loan last summer was a crucial and necessary step in his continued, explaining that his time away taught him so much both on and off the pitch.

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira is ready to switch his worldwide allegiance.

However, a source close to the playmaker said he still has his sights set on representing the Brazil national team and would turn down a chance to play for Belgium in the September friendlies against Scotland and Iceland in order to wait for a call from Brazil coach Tite.

Flamengo pair Hugo, 19, and Lucas Paqueta, 20, Fluminense's 21-year-old Pedro and Gremio winger Everton, 22, were also included but there was no place for Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, 21, in the 24-man squad.

The matches against the United States and El Salvador will be the team's first since the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Brazil, who were knocked out of the quarter-final stage by Belgium in Russian Federation, face El Salvador first on September 11 outside Washington before a clash with the U.S. in New Jersey four days later.

Tite admitted in Friday's press conference in Rio de Janeiro he was "bitter" over Brazil's World Cup quarter-final elimination by Belgium.

There is also a place for fellow Premier League stars Willian and Fred, while Lucas Paqueta, an exciting young midfielder, who has been linked with a move to Anfield is also named among the squad.
