Club career

Born in Ribeirão, Vila Nova de Famalicão, Moreira was a G.D. Ribeirão youth graduate. He made his senior debut for the club on 29 December 2013, coming on as a substitute for injured Paulo Cunha in a 2–3 home loss against A.D. Oliveirense for the Campeonato Nacional de Seniores.

In August 2014, after impressing with the Portuguese under-19s at the 2014 UEFA European Championship, Moreira was sold to Jorge Mendes' GestiFute and signed a six-year deal with Atlético Madrid.[1] He was immediately loaned to Primeira Liga side Moreirense FC,[2] making his professional debut on 28 December 2014 by starting in a 2–0 home win against F.C. Arouca for the season's Taça da Liga.[3]

On 1 July 2015, Moreira joined C.F. União in a season-long loan.[4] He made his debut in the main category on 16 August, in a 2–1 local derby triumph over C.S. Marítimo.

On 3 August 2016, Moreira was loaned to fellow top tier club C.F. Os Belenenses.[5] Fourteen days later his loan was cancelled, after the injury of Miguel Ángel Moyà.[6]

International career

Moreira represented Portugal at the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup. He played all matches in New Zealand, helping his country reach the quarter-finals.[7]
