Pellistri has suggested that Jadon Sancho's arrival at Old Trafford made him decide to head out on loan.
Speaking to The Athletic about his pre-season with United, Pellestri said: "I felt stronger in the first team, I scored in a game at Derby for the first team.
"It was a very hard pre-season, the hardest I've ever had. Physically, you are really pushed, the training is such a high level.
"New players came in, including in my position [Sancho] so I thought it was a good idea to go on loan again.
"The best thing for a player is to play, and for a young player, to get experience."
