Man Utd plan loan move for €10m teenager Pellistri as agent hints at La Liga switch23-Jan-2021, 10:55 pm
Manchester United are planning on sanctioning a loan switch for Facundo Pellistri, the Uruguayan’s agent has claimed.
A €10 million (£9m/$12m) deal was done with Penarol, with an exciting winger making his way to Old Trafford.
The Red Devils hope to see a path trodden to their first team, but are aware that the ongoing development of a hot prospect is going to require regular game time.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in no position to offer those opportunities at present, with his side involved in a Premier League title challenge, so alternative options are being explored.
Another window is open, meaning that Pellistri is free to head elsewhere, and his representative says a switch to La Liga is being lined up.
Pellistri has seen his early progress with United stunted by a bout of coronavirus, but he has fully recovered from that and returned to training.
He is looking to learn as much as possible from working in Solskjaer’s star-studded squad, with there plenty of role models to be found in Manchester.
The youngster has told the Red Devils’ official website: “It's been amazing to train with guys like Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Edi Cavani, who is very close friends with me.
“It's amazing for me because I watched them on TV and now I am practising with them. The intensity, the high quality they have, it's great for me to play with them and I improve a lot.
“All the time I speak with Edi and he is a very nice person. He is always trying to be around me, giving me advice and everything that I need. He is there to help me and that is very important for me. I am very happy with that.
