Ricardo Pereira is a Portuguese full-back who was born on October 6, 1993, and played for various youth sides in his home country before joining Vitória Guimarães in 2011. Capped at youth level by Portugal, Pereira can play on both sides of the defence and even as a winger. He moved to Porto in 2013 but joined Nice on a two-year loan deal in 2015, returning in 2017/18 to play regularly.
In May 2018, Leicester City forked out €25million to bring the pacey defender to the King Power Stadium and he has since established himself as one of the best in his position in the Premier League. Pereira is a full Portuguese international and made his debut against Luxembourgh in November 2015.
