Facundo Pellistri

Manchester United winger FacundoPellistri has joined Deportivo Alaves on loan for the remainder of the season.

Pellistri has featured for United's Under-23 side in recent months, scoringthree goals in eight appearances, and will now move to La Liga to continue his development.

Alaves will not have an option to purchase Pellistri at the end of the season. Sources told Goal that Club Brugge were also interested in taking Pellistri on loan, but the wingerhas always dreamed of playing in La Liga.

After Alaves presented their plans for his development and convinced him of his importance to the team, Pellistri instructed United of his wishes to go there.

ThoughPellistri hasn't featured for his side yet,Solskjaer is encouraged by his progress thus far and believes the Uruguayan teenager has a big future ahead of him at Old Trafford.

“Our scouts have followed Facundo for a long time and we believe that he will be a real talent for the long term," Solskjaer told Man Utd's official websiteafter Pellistri's move to La Liga was confirmed.

“Whilst we understand it will take time for him to adapt to the English game, he is capable of having an impact with his pace and ability to beat his opponent.

"We wish Facundo all the best for his spell with Alaves in Spain, and look forward to following his progress."

Pellistrihas made two matchday squads for United's first team so far, as hewas an unused substitute in the Champions League games against Paris Saint-Germain and Istanbul Basaksehir

Pellistri will now be thrown into a relegation battle in Spain, with Alaves currently in 18th place, the last of the three relegation spots. Abelardo's side are level on points with 17th-place Osasuna.
