Manchester United youngster Facundo Pellistri has sealed his second loan move to Alaves.

The Spanish club confirmed the news on their official website.

Pellistri enjoyed a loan at Alaves at the end of last season and helped the Spanish side avoid relegation.

Now after a successful pre-season campaign with Manchester United, Pellistri heads back to La Liga full of confidence.

When he signed for Alaves last time, Pellistri had only spent a few months at United and barely mixed with the first team.

Now Pellistri has proven to himself he has what it takes as a Manchester United player after making a positive impact in pre-season.

Pellistri scored against Derby, rounding the goalkeeper to score a very impressive goal, and then provided an assist in the friendly at QPR. He also got to play at Old Trafford for the first time.


It was always likely Pellistri would head back out loan due to the sheer volume of options United have on the wing. Amad is set to return to United from the Olympics.

Pellistri will benefit from a year away and return to United even stronger next summer. With a contract until 2026, United do not need to rush him.

This summer he showed fans what he can do, and created a bit of buzz about his talent which he had not had the opportunity to do in a United shirt previously. Now let’s see what this season brings and Pellistri will try to earn a first team spot at United again next year.

Alaves’ first La Liga fixture is at home to Real Madrid on Saturday August 14.
