New Man Utd signing Facundo Pellistri already thinking about leaving the club

New Manchester United star Facundo Pellistri has already got his sights set on leaving the club.

The 18-year-old signed from Penarol in a £10m deal and has been touted as a star for the future.

He arrived on deadline day and has signed a five-year deal at Old Trafford.

However, the youngster already has admitted he will be leaving United at some point after admitting he wants to return to Penarol.

Pellistri told Telemundo: "It is incredible that just over a year ago I made my debut in first team.

"It was unimaginable and to play in the first division with Penarol and now to play for Manchester United, I would never have dreamed of it and it is something very emotional for me and my family.

"There was a lot of talk about the two transfers and luckily they tried to leave me out as much as possible so I would to go crazy.

"First came Lyon and then Manchester United and I am very happy with the opportunity.

"It’s a league that I always watch with my parents, seeing the great teams and you can’t imagine going to play there.

"Now that I have the chance to play there, I’m eager to start new adventure and see how the rhythm is and if it is as intense as they say.

"It is the biggest club, I’ve come through the youth system, I was at the club for more than seven years, I lived everything, many experiences, very nice things like debuting at the Campeon del Siglo stadium [Penarol’s home stadium] among others.

"It was a dream and a pleasure to play for the team. I am leaving with a lot of desire to return one day."

At such a young age, whether or not the teenager makes a huge impact on the first-team remains to be seen.

But that is exactly why Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has snapped up the winger, who made 37 appearances for Penarol last campaign.

It follows a turbulent deadline day where four players were signed, including Pellistri's compatriot Edinson Cavani, as well as Alex Telles and Abad Diallo – though the latter will join the squad in January.
