Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appeared to break a transfer promise made to Facundo Pellistri last season - and the Manchester United boss is now planning to discuss his imminent plans with the highly-rated star.

The Red Devils signed Pellistri from Uruguayan side Penarol in last year's summer transfer window, splashing out £9million on the youngster.

Pellistri initially made a handful of appearances for United's Under-23s and trained with the first team on occasions following his big-money move.

But, despite Solskjaer promising Penarol chiefs that Pellistri would go "straight into the first team", the youngster was loaned out to Spanish club Alaves in January; and he duly delivered.

According to Noticias de Alava, the Spanish club are keen on bringing him back to La Liga this season after he impressed in his 12 appearances.

It is also claimed that United are 'planning to discuss' their plans for Pellistri this week, before making a decision on the 19-year-old winger.

It is understood that United need to decide whether they want him among the squad this season or to secure another loan abroad.

The report goes on to claim that 'everything suggests' that another loan spell away from the club is likely, meaning that Solskjaer appears to have broken his transfer promise.

According to Penarol vice-president Rodolfo Cantino and club secretary Evaristo Gonzalez, United ensured the Uruguayan club that the winger would go "straight into the first team" at Old Trafford.

Penarol were ultimately left disappointed, as they were keen on bringing their starlet back to the club on a temporary basis.

"Of course we asked for it [a loan deal]," Cantino told Uruguayan outlet Referi last year.

"We tried in every way but they argued that they wanted the player now. It's normal, when an European club buy a player, they travel immediately."

Penarol secretary Gonzalez added: "Pellistri goes straight to the first team. Going to play. In the negotiation they asked me if I could guarantee them if he was in the bubble because they need him. Then it will be a matter of the manager if he uses him."

Speaking this year, Pellistri lifted the lid on his one regret after he temporarily left Manchester United to join Deportivo Alaves on loan.

Pellistri enjoyed his time in Spain, but admitted he would have liked to have had more time to acclimatise to life with United.

"I am very happy despite the rapid changes, faster than I imagined," the Uruguayan told ESPN . "I was hoping to have a little more time in Manchester, but on the club's side they have organised what to do with each player.

"They thought that I would continue with the U23s but they thought it was time to make a move to the First Division."

Pellistri also opened up on what it's like training alongside his compatriot, Edinson Cavani, who has a wealth of experience plundering goals at the top level.

"It is something divine, to be every day talking about life with him," said Pellistri. "He helped me a lot at work, to kick, he taught me to use smaller studs because those were useful for him to avoid slipping because he had tried many.

"They are things that are helping you, they are forming you as a player and you make them your own."
