Erik ten Hag is reportedly open to the idea of Facundo Pellistri departing Old Trafford in the current transfer window.

As per a report from the Sun, there is a strong interest from Villarreal in acquiring the 22-year-old on a permanent basis.

They’ve renewed their interest in Pellistri, who previously had two loan stints at Alaves in Spain’s premier division.

Villarreal, also known as the Yellow Submarine, had considered signing him in the previous summer.

Interest in Pellistri isn’t limited to Villarreal. OGC Nice is also keen on bringing him on board, eyeing a loan deal that would last until the season’s conclusion.

Additionally, there have been connections with Sevilla, and it’s possible that other clubs that expressed interest in the summer might re-enter the fray for his signature.

United’s current preference is a loan move for Pellistri. The club is hopeful that a successful spell elsewhere could elevate his market value, leading to a lucrative future transfer.

Offensively, the Red Devils have underperformed this season, with a mere 22 goals in the Premier League.

In light of this, Ten Hag is eager to reorganise his squad, viewing the potential transfer of Pellistri as an opportunity to free up space for a more impactful forward.
