MANCHESTER UNITED have completed their fourth deadline-day transfer by landing Uruguayan winger Facundo Pellistri.

The Penarol sensation is only 18 but joins in an £9million deal on a five-year contract with an option for a further year.

Pellistri follows Alex Telles, Edinson Cavani and Amad Traore as new faces through the door at Old Trafford on the final day of the transfer window.

He said: “”To join a club with the history of Manchester United is a dream come true. I have learnt a lot at Penarol and I would like to thank them for everything they have done for me. ”

““To have the confidence of the manager is an amazing feeling and I know that working with him will be perfect for my development.”

I am coming into a squad full of great players who I will learn from every day. ”


““Everyone knows that Manchester United is a club that gives young players an opportunity and I am ready to work hard every day to earn those chances and prove myself in England.””

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: ““Our scouts have followed Facundo for a long time and we believe that he will be a real talent for the long term. ”

““Whilst we understand it will take time for him to adapt to the English game, he is capable of having an impact with his pace and ability to beat his opponent.”

““Facundo has the perfect platform at Manchester United to develop and he has all of the technical qualities and the right mentality required to become a top player here. ”
