Pellistri targets impressive World Cup to aid United EXIT, Real Sociedad build up – latest
MANCHESTER UNITED youngster Facundo Pellistri is targeting an impressive World Cup campaign to speed up a transfer.
The Uruguayan has spent time on loan at Alaves during his career at Old Trafford but a lack of game time for the 20-year-old could see him push for an exit.
And the World Cup provides the perfect platform for him to impress ahead of the January transfer window.
Erik ten Hag’s side face Real Sociedad in Europa League action on Thursday night and United have been handed a boost as Anthony Martial has returned to training.
The Frenchman was in good form before picking up an injury and will look to earn his place in the starting XI for Thursday’s clash.
Erik ten Hag should play Cristiano Ronaldo in his Manchester United side, according to ex-player Mikael Silvestre.The Red Devils have been thriving without the Portuguese superstar in the team, losing just one of the eight Premier League games they have begun without him in the starting line-up.That is compared with winning just one of the three league games with him in the starting XI – a 1-0 victory over West Ham on Sunday.Yet Silvestre, who played with Ronaldo for five years at Old Trafford from 2003 to 2008, believes there is still a place for the Man Utd legend in Ten Hag’s team.Speaking to bettingexpert, he said: “I think Cristiano can add to the team.
Whether it’s Premier League, Europa League, or when the cups start. When you score 20-plus goals from one season to another. He hasn’t aged five years.”He might be less mobile than others, than Marcus Rashford for example, but top clubs need top strikers.”It’s important that he plays as much as possible and that he’s available for the team.”
