Man Utd consider sending four youngsters out on loan including Pellistri who has already 'outgrown' U23 squad

MANCHESTER UNITED are considering sending four youngsters out on loan this month, according to reports.

And the quartet includes Uruguayan talent Facundo Pellistri who is said to have 'outgrown the Under-23s'.

Teden Mengi, Ethan Galbraith and Dylan Levitt are the other three in question, according to the Athletic.

Pellistri, 19, arrived from Penarol for £9million on deadline day in October and has only played for the U-23s since.

He has scored twice in six games and there is said to be a sense he needs more of a challenge to help his development.

Club staff are said to be wary of sending him to Championship side because the physical nature of the league might be too much for a teenager who has only recently arrived from South America.

But options in Spain are reportedly being considered with LaLiga side Celta Vigo said to have got in touch about a move already.

Ligue 1 outfit Lyon are also said to be keen and were interested in signing him last year before United beat them to it.

Mengi, Galbraith and Levitt are Pellistri's U-23 team-mates and could all be moving on this month too.

But after Levitt's disappointing loan spell at Charlton this season, the Red Devils are being careful to ensure the move is right for the players.


In the first team, Jesse Lingard's future is said to be in the balance.

The midfielder has failed to make a single appearance in the Premier League for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side this season.

Newcastle, West Brom and Sheffield United are all keen on signing the 28-year-old on a loan deal.

And London clubs Tottenham and West Ham could even make a move for the out-of-favour star.

But Solskjaer is still weighing up whether he can afford to let Lingard leave as the fixtures build up.

United are firmly in title contention, remain in the Europa League and -having beaten Liverpool 3-2 on Sunday – play West Ham in fifth round of the FA Cup.
