Portuguese full-back Ricardo Pereira intends on wearing the Leicester City shirt next season.
His form at the King Power has resulted in links to Barcelona and PSG, but it does not look like a move will be on the cards this summer, as reported by Leicestershire Live.
I can’t wait to pull the Leicester shirt on again and be back at the King Power Stadium in front of our amazing supporters.
Pereira was amazing for the Foxes last season as he was a constant threat from that right-hand flank.
The Portuguese defender’s sheer speed and dribbling ability was a great watch and was often too much for opposition teams to handle.
Pereira helped Leicester to 10 clean sheets in the Premier League last season. The 26-year-old also scored twice as well as registering an impressive six assists in his 35 league appearances for the Foxes.
He was named the Foxes’ Player of the Year and Player’s Player of the Year for the 18/19 season, which was a testament to the great season he had.
Four reasons why Leicester must keep Pereira
Rare to find
The speed and dribbling ability that Pereira possesses for a full-back is so hard to find in this current market.
Still only 25, Pereira has huge potential to improve as a player.
Connected with fans and players
The Leicester fans and his teammates seem to love him and that is shown through the awards he picked up.
The Portuguese star is one of Leicester’s leaders on the pitch, a great quality to have in the squad.
