Manchester United goalkeeper Joel Pereira has signed a new contract with the club.
The Portuguese shot-stopper has been at Old Trafford since July 2012 and is now tied to the club until June 2021, with the potential for that to be extended by a further 12 months. Pereira made his debut for United's senior side in January of this year when he replaced Sergio Romero in the FA Cup fourth round match against Wigan Athletic. He later made his full PL debut in a youthful side fielded by José Mourinho on the final day of the season against Crystal Palace. Heralding the news, Mourinho said: "Joel progressed really well during the course of the last season through hard work and commitment every day in training." He added: "I know I have said this before but I really do believe, if he continues his development and continues to work hard, he really can become the best Portuguese goalkeeper of the next generation."
