Former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan has discussed the signing of Facundo Pellestri on transfer deadline day, where United made four late additions.

While Pellestri is unlikely to be an immediate first-team regular at United, he can be a stellar asset for the future and Forlan, who worked with the player at Penarol, is impressed with his ability and shared his thoughts on the player's ability with current United boss Solskjaer ahead of the transfer.



“I told Facundo many times: ‘There are not players like you in Uruguay, but if you go to Europe, which attracts the best in the world, there will be many others who are very fast – and stronger than you too.



"I told Ole he has a lot of potential, but he has to keep developing.

Those additions came after a relatively quiet summer for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 's side, with Donny van de Beek being the only senior acquisition heading into the final 24 hours of the market.

Pellestri arrived at Old Trafford alongside compatriot Edinson Cavani, while Alex Telles was also signed on the final day of the window and an agreement was reached for Amad Diallo to join in January from Atalanta.

“There was a lot of interest in the player and I could understand why,” he told the South China Morning Post.
