Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes new signing Facundo Pellistri will be a welcome addition to the squad following their horror start to the season.
The 18-year-old was Solskjaer’s final signing on deadline day as he joined United for £10million from Penarol on a five-year-deal.
And he appears to have already made an impression on the United boss, who revealed he has brought skill sets to the squad that they don’t have in the current group of players.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes new signing Facundo Pellistri will be a welcome addition
The Man United boss said the 18-year-old has brought things they don’t have in current team
Solskjaer told MUFC.com: ‘He’s a young boy coming from Uruguay.
‘He’s a signing in the tradition of what we do here which is to bring young players in and let them grow and develop and become the player they can be.
Of course we’ll give him time. He’s more one for the future than now, but he’s exciting and he’s shown some things in training that we don’t really have here.
‘I’m looking forward to helping him develop and helping him settle.’
Solskjaer said that Alex Telles could make his debut against Newcastle on Saturday night
Another deadline day addition for United was left-back Alex Telles, who joined from Porto for an initial fee of £13.6million.
Solskjaer said that the Brazilian could make his debut against Newcastle on Saturday night, as he explained: ‘I’ll have a word with him and just make sure he feels up to it and hopefully we can bring him up to Newcastle.’
United will be hoping to bounce back from their 6-1 drubbing at the hands of Tottenham following a poor start to the Premier League season with one win and two losses.
