Journalist Joao Batista Filho claims that the Red Devils rejected a suggestion from Gremio.
Pellistri’s request to join a Brazilian Serie A team on a one-year loan, during which they would pay 60% of his salary, was rejected by Erik ten Hag because he wants the 21-year-old to obtain valuable experience at a European club.
If he performs well while gone, he might be given the chance to join the senior starting lineup; nevertheless, if the opposite occurs, he might be permanently sold.
Real Betis has reportedly also expressed interest in Pellistri, but FC Twente is presently more likely to sign the Uruguayan youngster during this transfer window.
Facundo Pellistri made his debut on January 10 of this year despite signing his contract three years prior. Ten Hag employed him sparingly, but he went on to make a total of nine more appearances across all competitions, leaving fans enthused about his potential.
