Man Utd winger set to join La Liga

The Red Devils winger will continue the season in Spain.

Manchester United winger Facundo Pellestri is on the verge of joining a La Liga club on loan.

Pellestri joined

Manchester United

from Penarol in the summer for € 9.9 million, but has yet to play in the first team. He has made eight appearances for Manchester United's Under-23 side and although he is training with the club's first team, Solksjaerhave yet to feature him.

Pellestri's agent Edgardo Lasalvia has confirmed that the Uruguayan midfielder will leave for Spain this month. He said:

"We are working on that (a transfer), surely Spain is the destination.”

The 19-year-old midfielder also contracted Covid-19 earlier this month and has recovered from the illness and is now waiting to play in the first team. With the arrival of Amad Diallo from Atalanta, there is no room for a Pellestri's in United's squad, so United welcome the Uruguayan midfielder on loan transfer.
