Man United reconsidering value of attacker following impressive pre-season performance

According to reports in Spain, following his impressive pre-season performance against Derby County earlier this week, Manchester United’s recruitment team have been forced to ‘revalue’ young attacker Facundo Pellistri.

That’s according to a recent report from AS, who claims the Red Devils’ decision-makers were left impressed following the youngster’s senior goal against Wayne Rooney’s Derby County.

Pellistri, 19, was given his first senior start, albeit, a non-competitive one, by manager Solskjaer during the Red Devils’ first pre-season match.

Not only did United prepare for the new 2021-22 season by claiming a 2-1 victory over Derby County, but Pellistri was also a stand out performer and even managed to bag himself a goal in the process.

After being heavily linked with a return back to La Liga side CD Alaves – the club he spent the second half of last season out on loan with, it appears United’s hierarchy are having second thoughts about shipping him out for a second time.

At least that is how AS’ report reads anyway – they do not go into too much detail, but they do note that following his recent and classy showing, the club has now ‘revalued’ the teenage attacker – hinting that there may be a place for him in Solskjaer’s first-team squad next season.

Do you think Pellistri should be loaned out again or stay and be promoted to the club’s first team? – Let us know in the comments.

    Pellistri has something about him, unlike FRED,JAMES,LINDELOF etc

    • Derek says:

      Agree. Pellistri was the only entertainment in a training session of a match vs Derby. He looks like he has the skills, perhaps needs to bulk up a bit. He was bullied off the ball too easily.
      Keep him. Send James on loan or get rid.

  2. Kisid Ndu says:

    Loaned out to one EPL team or at least to a Championship team for hardening up and growth

    • Jacqui Smith says:

      Yeah, keep him close to home. Apart from his footballing skills, I love his determination to succeed.
