Manchester United prospect Facundo Pellistri has caught the attention of fans after registering his first assist for the club in the youth team.
The young star made the switch to Old Trafford on deadline day but has yet to be seen in the senior squad.
Pellistri has trained with them but has not yet featured for the first-team despite fans’ impatience with seeing their new signing in action.
It’s believed the Uruguayan wonder-kid is not quite ready to make that step just yet and so has played for the U23s despite impressing in training.

It’ll certainly please fans to see Pellistri perform well as it means he’s adjusting to life in his new surroundings.
While supporters must be patient, it shouldn’t be too long before they get to see him in action on the big stage and it would be a surprise if the season finished without him making a few appearances off the bench.
