DONE DEAL? Man Utd agree Facundo Pellestri terms with Penarol

Manchester United have reached terms for Penarol winger Facundo Pellestri.

Local Uruguayan radio Sport890 reports United have agreed a deal to sign Pellistri.

The 18-year-old has agreed a five-year deal to move this summer, but his club Penarol are keen to keep him until January.

It is claimed that United want to sign the winger now and develop him in their own youth set-up before potentially promoting him to the first-team squad.

Pellistri also attracted the attention of Manchester City and Newcastle earlier this year.
