Earlier this week, Pellistri told us he is enjoying his football at United as he continues to adjust to life in Manchester, following that transfer from boyhood club Penarol in the summer.

“I am enjoying my time here in Manchester, in this club – with the Under-23s and with the first team.
“My team-mates are very kind with me and this is a very important reason why I am feeling much better with my performances and life here.”
