Manchester United have managed to secure the signings of Alex Telles, Edinson Cavani, Facundo Pellistri and Amad Traore on the last day of this transfer window.

Pellistri is a player many gamers will be familiar with as the 18-year-old was a certified superstar on Football Manager 20. And the jet-heeled winger is a starlet who fans will want to keep an eye on as he progresses through the ranks at Old Trafford.

Presumably, he is not the player the Red Devils faithful will have wanted to see vying for the right-wing position. However, the last talented teenager who played on the right-wing and occupied the No.28 shirt was a certain David Beckham.

Pellistri has the potential to become a superstar and head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could one day have to manage expectations of supporters clamouring to see the youngster start more frequently.
