Man Utd set to let Facundo Pellistri leave on loan transfer despite impressing Erik ten Hag | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly willing to let 21-year-old Facundo Pellistri leave on loan.

The winger, who joined the Red Devils in a £9million transfer in 2020, has made six appearances off the bench so far this season.

But he is yet to make his first start despite impressing Erik ten Hag in training.

According to Manchester Evening News, the Dutchman wants to send him out on loan in order to boost his development.

Pellistri enjoyed two successive loan spells at Alaves and spent the entirety of last season in LaLiga.

He returned to Old Trafford at the beginning of the season and made his first team debut in January against Charlton in the Carabao Cup.

The winger has since impressed both on the pitch and in training.

Following United's 4-1 win over Real Betis last week, Ten Hag told MUTV: "He is the example by deserving his position by performance on the training [ground].

"And I said the other day, I did not select him for Liverpool and it was not even totally justified because he was training that well.

"Now this was his moment to come on because of a longer period he performed in training.

"What impressed me was he came on and, straight [away], showed himself.

"When they came on, Scott [McTominay] and Pelli, it was 3-1 but 4-1 is huge, to make the extra goal. In the first moment, they did, which was brilliant."

Pellistri is one of two Man Utd players expected to be loaned out this summer.

Anthony Elanga is also set to leave Old Trafford in search of regular football.
