Man Utd’s next big thing set to miss start of the season

Manchester United Football Club could be about to lose the services of one of the best up and coming keepers on our books at the moment – Joel Castro Pereira. The talented Portuguese international has been named in his countries’ squad to take part in the Olympic Games.

That’s according to Adam Marshall, who is a current employer at Manchester United. He took to Twitter earlier to confirm the news, and the Olympic Games doesn’t take place until early August – meaning Pereira will miss the start of the season domestically.

Now we all know that it is highly unlikely that Pereira would feature for the first-team at all this season, but it will be a major blow for Warren Joyce, who would have seen the young goalkeeper as one of the key cogs in his plans.

However, it will be a brilliant experience for the young man, and who knows, he may well come home with a medal to show for it.
