Man United set to listen to loan offers for 19-year-old forward

Man United are willing to send Facundo Pellistri out on loan in the January transfer window, according to reports. The Uruguayan winger was signed in a £9m deal from Penarol in October and has trained with the first-team squad following his arrival at Theatre of Dreams.

Facundo is yet to make his first-team debut but he has played eight matches across Red Devils youth sides. Pellistri has been included in two UCL squads this campaign but the Norwegian manager is yet to give the winger his first appearance.

Red Devils are now open to loan offers for the 19-year-old winger this month as they are keen for the attacker to get regular first-team football. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed two weeks ago that the winger had tested positive for Covid-19 but the Red Devils will allow him to depart once he fully recovers.

Speaking earlier this month, Facundo revealed that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keeping tabs on his progress. ‘I am in contact with him all the time,’ said Pellistri. ‘He is giving me advice and asking me how I am doing and how I am feeling. That, for me, is very important and I am really thankful to him.’

The Red Devils are also not willing to entertain loan offers for Amad Diallo, who arrived at Theatre of Dreams earlier this month. Speaking this week, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suggested that the £37m signing from Atalanta is not far off making his debut for the Red Devils.

‘He can handle the ball, he’s enjoyed the training, he makes a difference in training, which is quite remarkable at his age,’ said the Norwegian manager.
