Facundo Pellistri was meant to play a part in Manchester United's U23 side this season before making a step up to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘s senior squad, with fans excited for his debut.
However, the 19-year-old attacker looks set to shipped off to La Liga on a temporary basis, according to his agent's latest comment.
Edgardo Laslvia has told Fichajes : “We are working on that (a transfer), surely Spain is the destination.”
The Uruguayan forward has already played one game for the U23s, having sat on the bench once for the senior side
Pellistri has looked in fine form during recent reserve games.
And it's clear the youngster is taking advantage of the experience in Red Devils' first-team.
Solskjaer when asked about Pellistri's U23 spell said: “He started training with the first-team – he did well but we couldn’t give him game-time so we thought we’d give him a run of games in the [Under] 23s and he’s benefited from that.
“His confidence has been given a boost. He’s shown in all the games that he can impact the game.”
