Villarreal considers making a transfer move for Man Utd’s Facundo Pellistri as Erik ten Hag is open to letting the winger leave

Introduction to the article:
This article discusses the renewed interest of Villarreal in Manchester United winger Facundo Pellistri, as he seeks more playing time. Other clubs, such as Sevilla and Nice, are also linked with the Uruguayan, prompting speculation about a potential January exit on loan.

Pellistri told to ‘step up’ by Man Utd boss

Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag has urged Facundo Pellistri to “step up” from being a substitute, which could potentially lead to a loan move for the 22-year-old winger. With Amad Diallo now fit and Alejandro Garnacho impressing, Pellistri has found himself slipping down the pecking order at Old Trafford.

Interest from Villarreal and Nice

Villarreal have reignited their interest in Pellistri, while it is also suggested that Nice, owned by Sir Jim Ratcliffe who has a stake in Manchester United, are keen on the Uruguayan. This potential move to Nice would mark the first transfer between United and one of Ratcliffe’s clubs.

Past loan spells and future prospects

Pellistri has previously had two loan spells in LaLiga with Alaves, and there is speculation about his future at Man Utd following the comments from Erik ten Hag. With the possibility of Jadon Sancho also leaving in January, it remains to be seen what the future holds for Pellistri at Old Trafford.
