Luis Suarez, Jordi Alba, Samuel Umtiti, Nelson Semedo, Sergio Busquets and 19-year-old midfielder Carles Arena were included in the lineup headed by Messi and Neymar.

"It would be easy for him to hide behind it and to say "it's time stop and go to a different level of football".

Andreas Pereira believes he is proving his worth to Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

"I can guarantee that he's not going this season, that I can".

The Brazilian striker, reportedly pondering a 222-million euro ($256.8 million) move to Paris Saint-Germain, showed why the French club would be willing to pay a world-record price to get him.

"The games have been getting harder each time and it is good for us, as we have an important match in the Super Cup against Real Madrid next month". Antonio Valencia perhaps should have dealt with the interception better, but when he lost his footing, Neymar was on hand to steer the ball into the back of the net.

In another clash, Danilo made his debut while Kevin De Bruyne led from the front as Manchester City registered a resounding 4-1 win over Real Madrid in California.

"I think it would be very bad for us to leave the USA without a defeat, playing against teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, it would be very bad to go home with just victories".

"I've been here, we won, and you want to grow up as a player and a leader as well".

"I am doing my best, I want to get into the team this season, I want to help my team and hopefully we can achieve a lot this season".

However, the Premier League giants struggled after a promising start, with De Gea's exploits ensuring United only trailed 1-0 at half-time.

They kick off their competitive campaign with a UEFA Super Cup meeting with Real Madrid on August 8 in Skopje.

Both coaches rang the changes at halftime, with Valverde replacing 10 players - only leaving Cillessen in goal. "So now we just need to land safely in Manchester and this part of the pre-season was ideal".
