Manchester United newcomer Facundo Pellistri admitted that at some point during his career he would like to return to Penarol.

The youngster joined the Red Devils on transfer deadline day from Penarol and signed a five-year deal with United.

Pellistri told Telemundo: “It is incredible that just over a year ago I made my debut in first team.

“It was unimaginable and to play in the first division with Penarol and now to play for Manchester United, I would never have dreamed of it and it is something very emotional for me and my family.

“There was a lot of talk about the two transfers and luckily they tried to leave me out as much as possible so I would to go crazy.

“First came Lyon and then Manchester United and I am very happy with the opportunity.

“It’s a league that I always watch with my parents, seeing the great teams and you can’t imagine going to play there.

“Now that I have the chance to play there, I’m eager to start new adventure and see how the rhythm is and if it is as intense as they say.

“It is the biggest club, I’ve come through the youth system, I was at the club for more than seven years, I lived everything, many experiences, very nice things like debuting at the Campeon del Siglo stadium [Penarol’s home stadium] among others.

“It was a dream and a pleasure to play for the team. I am leaving with a lot of desire to return one day.”
