      Benfica have announced the signing of Álvaro Fernández, now going by Álvaro Carreras, on a permanent deal.

      Carreras joined Manchester United's youth setup from Real Madrid in 2020 but didn't manage to make a first team appearance for the club.

      The defender spent last season on loan at Preston North End where he impressed before beginning the 2023/24 season on loan at Spanish side Granada.

      The Spaniard joined Benfica on loan with an option to buy for the second half of the season with the 21-year-old featuring 16 times for the Primeira Liga runners-up.

      Benfica today announced the signing of the full-back with a contract to keep him at the club until 2029.

      United have let a number of promising youth players leave the club on a permanent basis over the past year with Anthony Elanga, Matej Kovár, Marc Jurado, and Zidane Iqbal among those to depart.

      As a football fan, I'm excited to see Alvaro Carreras join Benfica on a permanent deal! He showed great potential during his loan spells and I believe he will thrive in the Primeira Liga. Good luck, Carreras!
