Manchester United new signing Facundo Pellistri has expressed his excitement over his rapid career advancement after securing a move from Penarol to Manchester United.

“It was unimaginable [a year ago] to play in the first division of Penarol and now to do it in Manchester United. I would never have dreamed of it and it is something very emotional for me and my family,” Facundo Pellistri has told Futbol.

The 18-year-old mainly featured as a right winger for Uruguayan side Penarol. The youngster is highly-rated for his technical skills and versatility as he can also play on the left wing in attack.

The player joined the Red Devils in an €8.5m move on the transfer deadline day.
