Facundo Pellistri gives Man United something to think about in another stunning individual display – Man United News And Transfer News


Manchester United loanee Facundo Pellistri has given his parent club something to think about as they contemplate a decision on his future, in yet another wonderful performance for Granada despite their defeat at the hands of Rayo Vallecano.

Granada were handed their third consecutive loss by their La Liga opponents at Estadio de Vallecas on Wednesday.

An 89th-minute goal from Lucas Boye only served to be a consolation prize for Pellistri and his teammates against Rayo, who played for large sections of the game with 10 men after Oscar Trejo was given his marching orders very early into proceedings.

However, the loss shouldn’t take anything away from Pellistri, who was brilliant again and is having a enjoying a strong finish to his temporary tenure with Granada.

Pellistri started on his favoured right side of a 4-2-3-1 formation.

The Uruguayan completed all 90 minutes and during that time, he had 35 touches of the ball to his name.

He successfully delivered 17 of the 21 passes he attempted to find his teammates with, managing an individual pass completion rate of 81%. One of Pellistri’s passes was a key pass.

Pellistri tried to find his target with four crosses and two long balls. He successfully connected with just one of his cross attempts and all two long balls that he pointed.

Unfortunately for the winger, he couldn’t test Stole Dimitrievski in the Rayo goal as he didn’t register any short, whether off-target or on-target.

The 22-year-old completed just one of the two dribbles he embarked on. He also won five of the 11 ground duels he delved into.

Pellistri drew in two could and also put in as many tackles.

He’s showing United that if they were to keep him and give him a chance, he can offer something. It’s well-known that the Red Devils are on the hunt for attacking reinforcements, especially in the right-wing position, with the likes of Michael Olise on the club’s radar.

If a move for Olise falls through, Pellistri could be someone United look to integrate into the side.
