Man United might be showing big faith in their new winger Facundo Pellistri by refusing to loan him back to his former club Penarol after his deal was completed on the summer transfer deadline day.

Facundo Pellistri is one of the players that joined the Red Devils on the deadline day and he happens to be the winger that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer got after being linked with a number of them.

It would be recalled that the Red Devils showed big interest in the England international winger Jadon Sancho but they were unable to reach an agreement with German Bundesliga outfit, Borussia Dortmund.

Real Madrid star Gareth Bale is another player the Red Devils paid attention to but he opted for North London outfit Tottenham while French forward Ousmane Dembele refused to leave Barcelona on the deadline day.

Man United might have settled for a player of a lower profile at age 18 but they seem to value him and want him to be a major part of the club this season.

According to Manchester Evening News, after agreeing with Man United for his deal, the Uruguay outfit Panarol made an attempt to have him back on loan until January but the Red Devils rejected it.
