Manchester United attacker Facundo Pellistri is likely to join a La Liga club on loan for the remainder of the season, according to the Uruguayan's agent Edgardo Lasalvia.

The 19-year-old is yet to make his first-team debut for the Red Devils since arriving from Penarol in October but has been involved on eight occasions for the club's Under-23s and Under-21s, scoring three times.

A recent report claimed that United were open to the idea of the summer arrival leaving on loan in order to continue his development away from the club.

Lasalvia, who represents Pellistri, has told Fichajes that the teenager is expected to spend the second half of the 2020-21 campaign in Spain.

The agent did not mention which club are at the head of the queue, but English journalist Jonathan Shrager posted on his official Twitter account on Friday afternoon that Celta Vigo were the favourites.

Pellistri, who has been training with United's first team this season, scored twice and registered four assists in 37 appearances for Penarol before moving to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.

Barcelona end interest in Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso?

Barcelona are reportedly unlikely to pursue a deal for Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso before the end of January.

Alonso has been frozen out by Blues manager Frank Lampard since September, leaving the Spaniard available for transfer at the midway point of the campaign.

According to Sempremilan, the left-back has allegedly emerged as a potential option for Barcelona, who are keen to offload Junior Firpo in the coming days.

However, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano says that AC Milan, the frontrunners for Firpo, have ended their interest in the player.

That has seemingly left Chelsea needing to find another interested club, although they may have to pay a significant portion of Alonso's wage to attract a bid for the 30-year-old.
