Man Utd set to send Facundo Pellistri out on loan transfer with Solskjaer wanting 19-year-old to get experience


FACUNDO PELLESTRI is already heading out on loan after failing to play for Manchester United since his summer arrival.

The Uruguay winger’s agent claimed the 19-year-old is set for a temporary switch to Spain this month.

But Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists the former Penarol starlet has “all the technical qualities” needed to succeed.

Pellestri has had no senior game-time for United despite recovering from coronavirus.

But he was on the bench for their Champions League group games with PSG and Istanbul Basaksehir.

And with a loan exit looming, Pellestri’s representative Edgardo Lasalvia said:  “We’re working on that, surely Spain is the destination.” 

But Solskjaer has stressed: “Facundo has the perfect platform at Man United to develop and he has all of the technical qualities and the right mentality required to become a top player here.

“We are all looking forward to working with him to fulfil his potential over the coming years.”

United recruited £9milion Pellestri after a dazzling scouting report from their ex-striker Diego Forlan.

But he has largely been restricted to Under-23 matches.

And with fellow winger Amad Diallo joining from Atalanta this month, Pellestri is even further away from the first-team reckoning.

Diallo, 18, has already been promoted to Solskjaer’s senior squad, reportedly even leapfrogging Jesse Lingard in the pecking order.
