Manchester United are reportedly reassessing Facundo Pellistri’s place in the squad after he impressed in pre-season, writes KEALAN HUGHES.
Pellistri, 19, was loaned to Alaves in January after signing for United in October, making 12 appearances in La Liga.
According to Spanish newspaper AS, United are reconsidering Pellistri’s place in the squad, claiming he could be set for a first-team role.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had stated his intention was to loan out the Uruguayan once again this summer.
The Red Devils boss, 49, said: “I can see a loan deal for him, there’s been loads of interest and for his best interests a loan would be what we look for.”
But speaking to MUTV, Pellistri shared his determination to stay and win a place in the team.
He said: “I went on loan to Alaves, I feel good, now I’m here trying my best, always pushing forward.
“I would like to stay here but I’m still working hard, improving and continue working.”
