Nuno Miguel Pereira Reis CvIH[2] (born 31 January 1991) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays mainly as a centre-back but also as a defensive midfielder for Australian club Melbourne City FC.

Club career

Born in Murten, Switzerland to Portuguese immigrants, Reis joined Sporting CP's youth ranks in 2003 at the age of 12, from Fátima-based Associação Desportiva Recreativa Cultural Vasco da Gama. During his formative years with the Lisbon club he won eight titles (including five national championships),[3] going on to be part of the junior sides that conquered three consecutive leagues and being captain during the last year. In addition, he was called up for two first-team games, against C.F. Os Belenenses and Atlético Madrid (the latter in the UEFA Europa League).[4]

After graduating from Sporting's academy, Reis was loaned out to Cercle Brugge K.S.V. in Belgium alongside teammate Renato Neto. In his first season in the Pro League he scored one goal[5] in 32 appearances (all starts), helping the team finish in ninth position.

On 29 January 2014, after one season with S.C. Olhanense – with which he made his Primeira Liga debut[6]– and five months with Sporting B, Reis returned to Cercle Brugge, on loan for the remainder of the campaign.[7] He left his parent club on 27 June 2015, signing a two-year deal at FC Metz which was orchestrated by the former's director Carlos Freitas.[8] He played 30 competitive matches as the season ended in promotion to Ligue 1, before he and compatriot André Santos were released.[9]

On 5 July 2016, Reis penned a three-year contract at Panathinaikos F.C. of the Super League Greece, on the recommendation of their director Gilberto Silva.[10] He left the club in January 2018 after appearing in 37 matches across all competitions,[11] his only goal coming in a 4–0 win against Asteras Tripolis F.C. in the domestic cup.[12]

Reis returned to his country of adoption on 28 January 2018, signing with Vitória F.C. until June 2020.[13] On 5 September, however, he moved abroad again after agreeing to a three-year deal at PFC Levski Sofia.[14]

On 18 January 2021, Reis signed with A-League's Melbourne City FC for three years.[15]

International career

Reis captained the Portugal under-20 side to the second place at the 2011 FIFA World Cup, playing all the matches and minutes in Colombia.[16][17] He made his debut for the under-21s on 5 September 2011, coming on as a substitute for João Pereira in the 62nd minute of a 1–0 friendly victory over France.[18]
