21-Year-Old Star Reportedly Set To Depart From Man United In Summer
Manchester United wonderkid Joel Pereira is reportedly set to depart from the club this summer in spite of Jose Mourinho calling him Portugal’s best shot-stopper of his generation.
The ‘keeper is the one-time Real Madrid manager’s third choice in the position behind Sergio Romero and David de Gea.
Joel has the tough task of beating not one but two capped internationals to secure his place as Manchester United’s first choice goalkeeper.
Jose clearly favours the academy man but whether it’s enough to get him past Sergio let alone, David is unlikely.
The Argentine star though has been rumoured to be on his way out of the Red Devils himself, meaning the youngster may have a shot at senior-team football after all.
According to the 4th Official, Pereira is keen on a loan for senior team football next season and could departure to one of the numbers of European clubs interested in a goalkeeper.
A loan switch would make sense for the highly rated star but if the Sergio Romero rumours turn out to be real then Portuguese’s better off remaining at the club.
