Manchester United seeks to solve the situation of Facundo Pellistri as soon as possible.
It is an open secret that the young man is not satisfied with his playing time, as he has not been able to force his way into Erik ten Hag’s plans.
It is even more telling that Pellistri, a natural right winger by trade, has not been named by the manager in the starting eleven even in the absence of Antony and Jadon Sancho.
Ten Hag has preferred to deploy Bruno Fernandes in that capacity, repeatedly bypassing Pellistri.
This is made more evident by the fact that Ten Hag has shown that he trusts Alejandro Garnacho and even started him last night against Real Sociedad, where the Argentine scored the only goal.
The Uruguayan’s agent recently came out and said his client would be looking to leave United after the World Cup in Qatar and that his departure was “imminent”.
Pellistri’s agent argued that if the player had a good tournament, it would be easier to secure a move away from Old Trafford.
According to Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, United are looking at loan opportunities for the 20-year-old winger.
Romano reports: “Manchester United will be looking at loan opportunities for Facundo Pellistri in January.”
“It is attracting interested parties from different countries and leagues, open to a potential move in 2023.”
“Man Utd spent almost €10m to sign Pellistri two years ago.”

It is not the first time that Pellistri has gone out on loan if United’s January plan comes to fruition. He spent time in Spain with Alavés, but the transfer was not very successful. He failed to score or assist even once.
Hopefully this time, the club can engineer a much better fit for the talented star who will ultimately help launch his United career.
