Man Utd fans aren't happy with club's transfer plan for Facundo Pellistri

Man Utd fans aren't happy with club's transfer plan for Facundo Pellistri

Manchester United winger Facundo Pellistri could be on the move this summer.

Manchester United forward Facundo Pellistri has been linked with a 'loan to buy' move ahead of the club's Premier League opener against Wolves.

The 21-year-old Uruguay international, who continues to impress when given first-team opportunities, featured on numerous occasions during their pre-season tour of America.

In fact, after returning from the United States with appearances against Arsenal, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund under his belt, Pellistri scored a late equaliser against La Liga outfit Athletic Bilbao on Sunday.

It was a goal that only enhanced his reputation with the Manchester United fan base, although some supporters are frustrated at reports linking the winger with a move away from Old Trafford.

According to Italian publication Quotidiano Nazionale, Serie A side Bologna are working to sign Pellistri from United, who are 'open to a loan with a right to buy'.

Pellistri, who already has an Italian passport meaning he wouldn’t count as a non-EU signing, is likely to go on loan in the coming weeks with first-team football not guaranteed.

But some are unhappy with the reported 'right to buy' option if he does leave for Bologna.

One fan said: "That kid got a lot of talent, we shouldn’t let him go imo," while another commented: "If we sell this kid without giving him a fair crack I’ll be fuming. Impressed with every cameo he gets."

A third wrote: "If this was just a loan I'd be pleased with this because Thiago Motta is implementing an excellent possession-based system that Pellistri could really add a lot to, however the option to buy really undermines it because we're just losing value."

A fourth added: "I doubt he's of the dubious 'United quality' or whatever, but he offers something we don't have in the squad, namely a winger who can go inside and outside down both flanks and provide genuine competition for Antony. Wouldn't like to see him gone."

Another report from The Manchester Evening News suggests United are yet to decide whether to let Pellistri head out on loan before the transfer window closes.

The winger has recently opened up about his future, saying: "If I go on loan, it's because I hope to get minutes and then return stronger. And If I stay, to play all the time, I can play and contribute to the team.

"We will see what happens in the next weeks but now I am enjoying this moment."
