Veteran signing Edinson Cavani has given his opinion on United’s new mystery signing Facundo Pellestri.
“Pellistri is a young lad and I really love the way he plays the game,” Cavani told United’s official website.
“He’s the typical South American footballer who has that mischievous nature to his game, and the way he lives his football is a bit like, as we say in Uruguay, being on ‘el campito’, as we call it, a makeshift pitch where you have a kickabout for fun with your mates or whoever.
“He’s a youngster who has a lot to learn but who has a lot to offer too. He’s already shown what he can do at Penarol in the games where he’s featured.
“I’ve liked him from the moment he made his first-team debut at Penarol, I liked him a lot. He’s coming here to the club, without a doubt determined to learn and mature as a player, but also to make a good contribution here himself.
“Learning his trade here is also going to be a great experience for him. So, it’s going to be good meeting up with him and travelling together on this journey in this new chapter for us both.”
