Manchester United open to loaning out Facundo Pellistri this month

Pellistri’s United stint

Facundo Pellistri was one of several players to have come through the door at Old Trafford during the summer transfer window.

The 19-year-old had impressed in his home country of Uruguay, leading to a host of clubs expressing an interest in his signature.

In the Premier League, all of Man United, Manchester City and Chelsea were linked with a move for the winger.

In the end, though, it was of course the former of this trio who secured Pellistri’s services, with the Red Devils understood to have paid around £9m to bring the South American to England.

The youngster has since gone on to notch eight appearances for Man United’s under-23 side, scoring three and assisting one, including the below-linked strike vs Southampton:

When it comes to senior action, though, Pellistri is yet to make a single appearance for the Manchester powerhouse, instead being afforded a spot on the bench for a pair of Champions League fixtures.

And now, with less than a week remaining of the winter window, a potential Old Trafford exit could be on the cards for Pellistri.

As per a report from The Athletic on Monday, United are open to sending the winger out on loan, but scrutiny is being applied to any and all proposals, with Solskjaer keen to ensure that any such move benefits Pellistri.

It is added that the Red Devils are wary of sending Pellistri to a Championship club, amid concerns over the division’s physical nature, with options in Europe also being explored:
