In our latest lease review for the 2020/21 season, we take a look at the Manchester United Guardians.

The young Portuguese goalkeeper hoped to leave behind a disastrous season in Scotland.
With Huddersfield on loan, opportunities were limited throughout the season and Pereira played a backup role.
Appearing only twice in a season and conceding 11 goals, including a 7-0 lead over Norwich, the young man’s fate, unfortunately, has not changed.
Since his deal expires this month, Joel Pereira it is expected to be released and a new club will be sought this summer.
In the sensational 2019/20 U-23 season, in which he played a pivotal role in promotion, the young goalkeeper was ready to enter adult football.
Teaming up with former Manchester United player Richie Wellens, Kovar signed with Swindon Town, recently promoted to the League.
After an impressive debut and praise for his distribution, the goalkeeper’s time at Swindon has deteriorated sharply.
When the side fought, the fans immediately jumped on the young man’s back, reinforcing his already losing confidence.
Kovar conceded the most goals in a league match when Richie Wellens left Swindon and was replaced by John Sheridan.
Replaced by substitute goalkeeper Joe Fryer, Swindon conceded three goals in two straight games, resulting in John Sheridan bringing Kovar back into the squad.
The blank slate after his return received praise from coach Tommy Wright, but the positive results did not last long as Swindon continued to fall behind with more buckets. Speaking of their protection, Wright said “If you have a goalkeeper who is now playing for us in defense, it will be difficult for them, because we are missing goals out of the blue.”
Ultimately, Kovar continued to fight for a disorganized team, which was in the relegation zone by January, and it was decided that his loan would be terminated ahead of schedule.
Upon his return to United, Kovar played for the U-23 team. In his first second leg, the depleted shell of his former self-confidence was evident as the young goalkeeper made several mistakes that led to four missing in the defeat.
Gradually, Kovar strengthened his confidence in the youth team and began to demonstrate his talent.
Looking into next season, it is likely that there is another credit at stake. This time, United may want to find a more stable club to create a more welcoming atmosphere for the young goalkeeper.
He originally moved to Brighouse Town in the Northwest Northern Premier League, but after just four appearances, the Englishman was interrupted by the suspension of minor league football matches.
Carney subsequently moved to Portadown in the NIFL Premier League in Northern Ireland. He had not been to Armagh long before he showed his talent and showed Portadown supporters why he had signed with a club as big as Manchester United.
After winning Player of the Month in February in his first full month at the club, Carney was an immediate fan favorite. After February, the young goalkeeper was recognized by fans as their player of the month and for April.

Carney, recently added to the list released this summer was tied up with Sunderland, Brighton and Burnley.
