Facundo Pellistri has joined Spanish club Alaves for the remainder of the season.
The 19-year old winger signed for the Red Devils in the summer window of 2020 for a reported fee of £9m and is yet to make his first senior appearance for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
He played for the U-23s and has scored three goals in eight appearances.
A move to the Spanish club Alaves will guarantee him some more playing time and the next few steps in his development.

“Our scouts have followed Facundo for a long time and we believe that he will be a real talent for the long term,” Solskjaer told Man Utd’s official website after Pellistri’s move to La Liga was confirmed.
“Whilst we understand it will take time for him to adapt to the English game, he is capable of having an impact with his pace and ability to beat his opponent.
“We wish Facundo all the best for his spell with Alaves in Spain, and look forward to following his progress.”
