But ESPN Uruguay report that his next destination will be in either Portugal or Italy.

Pellistri has been touted by some to become a first team player in the future for the Red Devils.

The Uruguayan impressed in the second half of the 4-0 rout against Liverpool in Bangkok last week.

The starlet even scored the fourth to round off the pre-season performance.

After exchanging passes with Amad Diallo on a counter-attack, Pellistri rolled a shot into the bottom corner.

However, the winger has reportedly been unhappy at Alaves, leading to the club exploring a switch to the Portuguese or Italian leagues.

The Basque-based team were relegated from La Liga last term.

He made 34 total appearances, but couldn’t record a goal nor an assist.

Before finalising the decision, his agent Agustin Alvarez claimed new boss Erik Ten Hag was debating what to do with the youngster.

Alvarez said: “Ten Hag will decide if he [Pellistri] will stay or be loaned out.”

Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo’s partner Georgina Rodriguez is said to want him to return to Spain.

The superstar is pushing for an Old Trafford exit this summer, having not attended their pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia.

And Rodriguez wants to return to Spain, with Madrid top of the list.
