Watch: Man Utd’s Pellistri shows exciting quick feet before heavy tackle
Manchester United fans have got their first glimpse of new signing Facundo Pellistri after the 18-year-old signed from Penarol on deadline day.
Pellistri came through the ranks with the Uruguayan side and played under Diego Forlan before moving to Old Trafford in a £9million deal.
After sitting on the bench in United’s 2-1 win over PSG, the winger played for their Under-23s against Everton on Friday night.
He showcased his impressive footwork before receiving a rough introduction to English football, being on the received end of a nasty two-footed challenge.

Pellistri didn’t let that affect him, however, and helped United secure a 2-1 win against the Toffees.
Happy for my first 90 minutes with @ManUtd U23 🔴👊🏼
