MANCHESTER UNITED star Facundo Pellistri is hoping to leave in January, according to reports.
The winger has not played a single minute under Erik ten Hag and he is still waiting for his senior debut for the Red Devils.
He missed out on a loan move away in the summer due to injury and now he's recovered he finds himself as something of a forgotten man.
Pellistri joined the club in 2020 for a fee of around £9million from Uruguayan side Penarol.
He was dubbed a wonderkid when he signed and was recommended to the club by ex-striker Diego Forlan before they beat Lyon to his signature.
Pellistri was loaned out to LaLiga outfit Deportivo Alaves for 18 months, playing 35 times but failing to register a goal or assist.
