Diego Forlan reveals details of the chat he had with Solskjaer about new Manchester United signing

Former Man United star, Diego Forlan, has expressed confidence that deadline day arrival, Facundo Pellistri, is at the right club, and will get a chance to play for the senior team soon.

The teenager, who scored his first Man United goal recently, arrived from Uruguayan side, Penarol, after impressing with them, and has been developing himself with the U-23S.

Speaking recently on the player’s developement and progress, Forlan revealed he had a chat with Solskjaer before the player arrived, and he was always confident United is the best place for him.

He said, “I think he [Pellistri] will have a chance to play this season.

“They are taking it little by little. We had the opportunity to talk when I was in Peñarol and Ole called me to get a reference for the player.

“It seemed like an ideal club for him because they were going to give him the time. Even though he could have arrived and played directly, he is a young boy, you can’t rush him, because he has conditions to continue growing and improving.

“Little by little he will get his chance. The coach will see when is the best moment [to play him], because he arrived at a club that is managed that way and that is the beauty of it.”
