Man Utd winger Pellistri delighted with Alaves return: We can beat Real Madrid

Manchester United winger Facundo Pellistri is delighted with his move to Alaves.

Pellistri has returned to Alaves for a season-long loan after last season's six-month deal.

"If I had the possibility of getting out on loan, I wanted to be at Alavés because I felt very comfortable last season and luckily they received me in the best way," said the Uruguayan.

"Mainly I come to look for as many minutes as possible and feel more comfortable giving assists and helping the team."

Regarding the opening LaLiga clash against Real Madrid this Saturday, the Montevidean warned that they are "eager to start the LaLiga in the best way" and did not rule out victory against the Merengues team because "at the beginning of the season there may be distractions".
