Solskjaer names player to leave Manchester United – See Player
Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has named the player who will leave the club this summer.
According to Solskjaer, Facundo Pellistri will leave Man United on loan this summer ahead of the 2021/22 season.
He said it would be in Pellistri’s ‘best interests’ if he spends another season out on loan.
The Norwegian said this following Man United’s pre-season friendly 2-1 win against Derby County on Sunday.
Goals from Tahith Chong and Pellistri gave Solskjaer’s side the win against Derby.
“He [Pellistri] was bright when he came on [against Derby Count],” Solskjaer told MUTV.
“I think he showed what he is because he’s a difficult player to play against.
“One against one, he can go past people so very pleased with him.
“I can see a loan deal for him [Pellistri], there’s been loads of interest and for his best interests, a loan would be what we look for.”
Pellistri joined Man United in a £9 million deal from Uruguayan side Penarol last year.
The 19-year-old did not make his first-team debut for Man United before he was sent out on loan to Alaves in January.
