Pedro Neto is a product of SC Braga youth academy. On 7 May 2017, he made his professional debut with Braga B in a LigaPro fixture against FC Porto B. One week later he made his first-team debut in Braga’s 4-0 win against Nacional Funchal, in which he scored the fourth goal after coming on as a second-half substitute. It is well known that many European top clubs, including giants Arsenal & FC Barcelona, have recently shown interest in him, but it seems that it would be best for his development if he could stay in Portugal and play regular first-team football for Braga.
