Penarol star Facundo Pellistri has been pictured undergoing his medical after reports surfaced over a potential move to Manchester United.
The young winger suddenly popped up as a potential signing and it’s believed negotiations have gone well.
So well in fact that he’s completing a medical to wrap up his transfer to United in a summer when Jadon Sancho was meant to be brought in.
Pellistri offers a different kind of profile and the hope will be he can hit the ground running.
According to those who broke the news, he will be joining the first-team so supporters can expect him to make fairly regular appearances.

At just 18 years of age, not a lot can be expected of Pellistri but unfortunately, the limelight will be thrown on him nonetheless.
He is billed as a wonder-kid and Manchester United’s need for a right-winger means there will be hopes he can fill that role.
Pellistri must be given time however, not only is he young and coming in to a new country but it is a new league and a tougher environment too.
Throwing him into the deep-end will do him more damage than good and United fans will have to bide their time.
This summer’s transfer window has been one of the strangest in living memory. So cast your mind back to less stressful days and test your knowledge of past United arrivals and departures in our quiz below.
