However, since his time at academy level with United, the goalkeeper has spent the majority of his career out on loan at various sides.
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.
Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
Let’s put him out of his misery already…jst release him

Can we just sell this guy, he’s never going to make it if we’re being honest.

Why don’t we just sell him, we clearly don’t want him

We should just let him go full time imo, don’t see a path for him to the first team as he’s behind Dave, Sergio and Dean.
