Pellistri to Granada on loan? Ten Hag holds the key

A loan move to Granada for Facundo Pellistri seems all but agreed upon, with Fabrizio Romano reporting the deal awaits only Erik ten Hag’s approval.

However, the manager’s recent decisions suggest potential hesitation due to attacking depth concerns.

Marcus Rashford’s disciplinary problems, including missing training and nightclub appearances, led to his omission from the FA Cup win.

This incident, combined with Rashford’s limited playing time under Ten Hag, throws uncertainty on United’s attacking options.

Despite the potential shortage of attackers, Pellistri surprisingly remained unused against Newport, possibly reflecting his current standing under the manager.

Pellistri’s potential departure would make him the tenth United player loaned out this season, following Radek Vitek’s move to Accrington Stanley.

While Pellistri has made nine Premier League appearances, only one as a starter, he has yet to find the net for United.

Despite contributing one assist, his overall impact has been minimal.

Despite the current situation, a loan to Granada could provide valuable playing time and La Liga experience for Pellistri’s continued development.
