Manchester United’s prospect Facundo Pellistri is likely to be loaned.
Felistri is a 2001 Uruguay-born prospect who plays as a winger. He made his professional debut through Uruguay’s prestigious Pena Roll Youth and transferred to Manchester United in 2020. In 2021, he went on loan to Deportivo Alaves to build on his experience.
He returned after gaining experience at Alaves, but never had a chance at United. He has not yet played in the English Premier League (EPL) this season. He sat on the bench for two games in the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup), but did not make an appearance.
But he most recently played in his first official match of the season. Manchester United recorded a 3-0 victory over Charlton Athletic in the 2022-23 EFL Cup quarterfinals held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England at 5:00 am (Korean time) on the 11th. With this, Manchester United succeeded in advancing to the quarterfinals.
On this day, Pellistri was substituted for Anthony Elanga six minutes before the end of regular time in the second half. And 6 minutes after coming in, he assisted Marcus Rashford’s goal and recorded his first offensive point of the season.
The evaluation continues that Pellistri, who showed an impact in a short time, needs more playing time. Felistri was selected to represent Uruguay at the World Cup in Qatar and played in all three group stage matches, and there were many predictions that coach Eric Ten Hag would give him a chance right after the World Cup, but in the end, he only played one match.
Opinions are being raised that Pellistri should leave the team when the opportunity is not given. South American soccer expert Tim Vickery told British media ‘Sky Sports’, “Pellistri is currently unhappy. He obviously expected to travel a lot after attending the World Cup, but he did not.”
Vickery then gave Pellistri a favorable review. “Pellistri is not just a winger, he can also play as an attacking midfielder. He has great speed, dribbling ability and vision. He fits better on the pitch than on the bench or in the stands,” he said. 토토사이트
He went on to add that “Felistri are thinking of loaning him to find more playing opportunities. Brazil’s Botafogo wants him on loan, and Championship side Watford wants him as well.” Attention is focusing on the future of Pellistri, who was virtually excluded from Ten Hag’s plan.
