Manchester United have confirmed Joel Pereira has joined Portuguese side Vitoria Sebutal for the 2018/19 campaign.
The youngster has been the club’s third choice keeper for 18 months and impressed supporters during Man United’s penalty shootout win over AC Milan on tour this summer.
His last loan move came at Portuguese side Belenenses, where he made ten appearances, during the first half of Jose Mourinho‘s opening campaign as United boss.
The club has confirmed that Pereira has once again returned to his homeland in order to receive more minutes in Portugal’s top division.
All the best, Joel!

Teammate and new signing Diogo Dalot has wished his fellow countryman well, asking him to keep plenty of clean sheets apart from when he goes up against former side Porto.
🇵🇹 ••• Boa sorte meu irmão! Continua forte sem sofrer golos, exceto em dois jogos 🔵⚪️✌🏻😉
Até já ❤️
