3 min read

On what was a busy deadline day for the club, Manchester United confirmed the signing of four players, including talented youngster Facundo Pellistri.

The 18-year-old has been on United’s radar for a year and MEN Sport understand he could go straight into the first-team squad, which demonstrates how highly he’s rated by the club.

The young winger was previously at Uruguayan Primera División side Penarol and even played under former United player Diego Forlan until his recent dismissal.

So, just how big a talent is Pellistri? And, what are his best attributes?

Overall rating: 71/100

Potential rating: 87/100

Age: 18

Best FIFA 21 attributes: Acceleration (84), sprint speed (84), agility (83), balance (76), jumping (75), stamina (75), dribbling (75), ball control (70)

Judging by Pellistri’s FIFA 21 profile, the 18-year-old looks to be a huge talent.

The winger has been given an overall rating of 71 out of 100 on FIFA 21, which ranks him around the same ability as United players like Axel Tuanzebe and Timothy Fosu-Mensah, so he’s definitely good enough to be involved in the squad on current ability.

But it’s the potential rating that really stands out with Pellistri. The Uruguayan youngster has been given a potential ability rating of 87 out of 100.

To put this into context, FIFA 21 suggests that Pellistri could become United’s joint-best player over the next few years, matching Bruno Fernandes’ current ability rating, and rated above Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Interestingly, FIFA 21 reckon Pellistri can become as good as United target Jadon Sancho over the next few years, and can also become better than players like Thomas Muller, Jamie Vardy, David Silva, Jordan Henderson and Alejandro Gomez.

Pellistri’s best attributes, according to FIFA 21, are his speed, balance, jumping, stamina, dribbling and ball control.
