Manchester United are reportedly pushing to sign 18-year-old Penarol winger Facundo Pellistri ahead of Monday's 11pm transfer deadline.

Manchester United are reportedly pushing to complete the signing of Penarol youngster Facundo Pellistri before tonight's transfer deadline.

United have been in the market for a new right-winger throughout the summer transfer window but look increasingly unlikely to seal a deal for top target Jadon Sancho or back-up option Ousmane Dembele.

The Manchester Evening News reports that the Red Devils are instead in talks over a late move for Pellistri worth around €10m (£9.1m).

United have reportedly been tracking the 18-year-old for more than a year after he broke into the Penarol first team under manager and former United striker Diego Forlan.

Pellistri could become one of two Uruguayans to join the 20-time English champions on deadline day, with Edinson Cavani also on the verge of joining.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are also expected to complete a deal for Alex Telles before Monday's deadline, having only brought in Donny van de Beek so far this summer.
