The agent of the Manchester United winger Facundo Pellistri says that his client has several likely destinations in the event of leaving Old Trafford.
In recent days, Pellistri has become the subject of intense interest both in South America and in Europe.
Along with European clubs, Flamengo has also expressed strong admiration for the Uruguayan and intends to add him to its ranks.
Interest in Pellistri was revived after his brilliant cameo in the Carabao Cup against Charlton Athletic.
The 21-year-old replaced Elanga in the last minutes of the game and showed a brilliant game, capped by a well-worked pass that scored Marcus Rashford.
La Salvia, the player’s agent, said: “It is clear that Manchester United want him to stay at the club.
“However, we need him to play.
“There are many options for renting Facundo in Europe.”

La Salvia’s comments came in the midst of a CalcioMercato report via SportWitness, which reports that the deal for the young forward to Valencia is in the final stages of completion.
According to the report, the United youth is on the verge of moving to Valencia.
This happened after contacts in the last few days, when the deal is close to completion.
The report does not indicate whether Pellistri’s move to Valencia will be temporary or permanent.
However, the former is more likely.
After the Charlton game, Erik ten Hag made it clear that the Uruguayan has a future at Old Trafford.
Ten Hag also said that Pellistri worked hard in training and should continue to do so and wait for the opportunity to declare himself in the starting lineup.
It was also reported that the leaders of the United clubs want to meet with the player’s representatives and discuss the extension of the contract.
However, according to SuperDeporte, Pellistri’s move to Mestalla is unlikely. While the player’s agent is moving towards the exit with a switch to Valencia on the cards, there is a deterrent.
Like Januzaj, Pellistri gets almost no minutes and lacks the sharpness needed to play. Superdeporte claims that Valencia coach Gennaro Gattuso wants the players to “slide” and will not agree with the invitation of a player who lacks game preparation.
