Manchester United are making the extension of Facundo Pellistri’s contract a priority, according to reports. The Uruguayan winger has two years left on his current deal, but the club are keen to tie him down to a longer-term contract.
Talks between United and Pellistri’s representatives have already taken place in April and during the summer, and they are set to advance soon. The club are hopeful of reaching an agreement that will keep Pellistri at Old Trafford for the long term.
Pellistri is seen as a talented young player with a bright future. He joined United from Club Atletico Penarol in 2020, and he has since made 10 appearances for the club. He spent the second half of last season on loan at Alaves, where he scored one goal in 12 appearances.
New Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is a fan of Pellistri, and he is keen to give the winger a chance to prove himself in the Premier League. However, the club also believe that Pellistri would benefit from a loan move to a club where he would get more regular playing time.
It is possible that United could agree to a loan deal with an option to buy, but they are also open to keeping Pellistri at the club for the upcoming season. The club are confident that he has the potential to be a key player for them in the future.
Pellistri’s new contract would be a sign of United’s faith in his ability. It would also show that they are committed to giving young players a chance to break through into the first team.
