Ole provides latest update on Pellistri

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the club will look to loan out new signing Facundo Pellistri. 

The youngster was signed during the summer from Penarol but is yet to make any senior team appearance having exclusively featured for the Under-23s so far. 

Th winger could be sent out on loan this January, with the club keen on finding him first-team football.

“Yeah, there have been talks, there have been quite a few clubs interested in Facundo to go out on loan,” said Solskjaer.

“That’s maybe something we will let him do now. He’s had a few games in the Reserves.

“We want him to have regular football, of course, at a higher level.”

A number of top European sides have shown interest in Pellistri, including Belgian giants Clubb Brugge and Spanish side Alaves. 

He also spoke about another new arrival, Diallo Amad, who was signed from Italian side Atalanta. 

“With Amad, I think it’s a different scenario, he’s just come in and he’s going through a good training regime, training programme, and he’s doing really well,” continued Ole.

“It won’t be too long, I feel, before I can bring him into the squad.”
