Manchester United will not be loaning Facundo Pellistri out this summer, following positive talks with Erik ten Hag.

Facundo Pellistri is believed to be on the verge of breaking into the first team at Old Trafford.

Impressing at every opportunity he is given, he has made sending him on loan impossible for Erik ten Hag.

Despite only getting 18 minutes of on-field action this season to-date, the general consensus is that he will get far more as fixtures begin to stack up.

Pellistri has been linked with a loan move away all summer, but that finally seems to be put to bed with just a day left in the window.

Pellsitri to remain at Old Trafford after talk with Ten Hag

The Athletic have reported that Pellistri is set to remain at Old Trafford this season after he had a recent talk with Ten Hag.

In this meeting it is thought that Ten Hag told the 21-year-old that he should continue his development at United opposed to heading on loan.

This shutting down rumours of a late loan to FC Twente for the Uruguayan international.

Pellistri had also seemingly attracted interest from Premier League sides including Wolves and Sheffield United.

But now it seems Ten Hag has big plans for his silky winger this season as it is added that talks have been held over a potential new and improved contract with extended terms.

Finally set to play a role at United

When he joined form Penarol back in 2020 for a fee of £9million, many eyebrows were raised.

However it quickly became apparent that United had a very raw gem on their hands who could become a very dangerous player.

You only have to look at his Uruguayan career for evidence of this, he is an absolute star for his national team regularly starting on the right-wing.

He also has been on the tips of many United fans’ tounges this summer as a player to play a huge part this season.

Now it seems we will get to see this happen.
