Manchester United fans react as Joel Pereira completes loan move to Hearts

Premiership Picks

Having signed for Manchester United back in 2012, Joel Pereira was part of the team that won the 2014/2015 U21 Development League title and subsequently extended his contract at Old Trafford.

However, since his time at academy level with United, the goalkeeper has spent the majority of his career out on loan at various sides.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed spells with Rochdale, Belenenses, Vitoria Setubal and Kortrijk, and it has now been confirmed that he will once again spend the season away from Manchester.

As revealed on the club’s official website, Pereira has joined Scottish side Hearts on a season-long loan in order to “obtain regular first-team football and continue his development between the posts”.

After hearing the update on Pereira’s future, United fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the matter.

Many supporters of the Manchester side felt he should have been sold this summer instead, and insisted he has no chance of breaking past the likes of David de Gea and Dean Henderson to claim the number one jersey at United.

Indeed, some fans suggested the club should simply “put him out of his misery” and just release him.
