Ole Gunnar reveals plans for youngster Facundo Pellistri – Futaa.com

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Facundo Pellistri will be loaned as he continues with his development. 

The 19-year-old winger was signed last summer but was used sparingly in his first season at Old Trafford. 

He was impressive in United’s first pre-season match, a 2-1 win over Derby County on Sunday, and Solskjaer revealed afterward that there are a number of suitors for the Uruguayan. 

“I can see a loan deal for him,” Solskjaer said.

“There’s been loads of interest and for his best interests as well, I think a loan will be what we look for.”

Ole was impressed with Pellistri’s performance against the Rams, showering him with praises.

“I thought he was bright, of course, he takes his goal really well. First touch, a good pass from Shola, but great first touch sets him up.

“I think he shows what he is, he’s a difficult player to play against. One against one he can go up past people and I’m very pleased with him.”
