Manchester United are considering the signature of Uruguay starlet Facundo Pellistri and are hoping to be helped with advice by Diego Forlan, reports claim.
The Athletic, as quoted by Metro, claims the Red Devils are soon to make a bid for the 18-year-old in the coming summer transfer window.
It is believed that Forlan has firsthand knowledge of the highly-rated winger, especially now that he is a coach at Penarol.
Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hoping to benefit from his relationship with Forlan as his former teammate to make the best decision for the club.
