Watford are interested in signing Manchester United youngster Facundo Pellistri on loan.
Britain’s ‘Telegraph’ reported on the 11th (Korean time) that “Watford are hoping to take Manchester United’s Pellistri on loan for the rest of the season.”
The Uruguayan national Pellistri joined Old Trafford in the summer of 2020. Expectations were high that he would be in charge of the team’s main winger in the future. But he seldom played. He performed in the second team every season, and was never given the chance to make his first team debut.
He ended up leaving the lease. Pellistri gained more experience while on loan to Spanish La Liga side Deportivo Alaves for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons. However, even at that time, he played an active role as a rotation resource rather than a starting player. 온라인바카라
Although he made few appearances, he earned a place in the Uruguay national team. Felistri wore the Uruguay uniform at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Coincidentally, Felistri’s World Cup debut was against Korea. Felistri, who started at the time, was in charge of attacking the right side, but was blocked by Kim Jin-soo’s defense and was replaced without showing any significant performance.
Although he had loan and World Cup experience, the road to start was tough. Alejandro Gar Nacho achieved rapid growth, and as Anthony was recruited, his position further decreased. I was given an opportunity in this situation. Felistri made his first first-team debut since his transfer to Manchester United as a substitute in the quarterfinals of the English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) against Charlton Athletic on the 11th.
The impact was clear. Felistri scored an attack point in the 6th minute after being substituted. Felistri made a strong impression in his debut match by helping Marcus Rashford score in the 45th minute of the second half.
Watford paid attention to this situation. Watford are currently 4th in the English Championship (Second Division). If you stay in the top 6 at the end of the season, you qualify for the promotion play-offs. However, Millwall and Luton Town, including Middlesbrough, are currently chasing with 39 points, making it difficult to guarantee fourth place.
Therefore, it is a will to strengthen power by leasing Pellistri. “Watford head coach Slaven Bilic is eager to bring in Pellistri to strengthen the squad ahead of promotion to the English Premier League (EPL). Watford have key player João Pedro suffering from injury. Young “Bilic’s strong track record of developing players and playing attacking football will increase Pellistri’s chances.”
