Refusal: Man United refuses to pay an off-of-10m fee to activate Fasundo Pelistri’s release clause, citing ‘club policy’ – and rejects his request for a loan from Penarol because he is directly in the first team.
- Penarol officials have lifted the ban on Manchester United as they move পেল 10 million to Palestra.
- They say United have a club policy that they do not provide a player release clause
- They sent the transfer money to the Uruguayan club ‘instead of solving that problem’
- Palestry fees will be paid in two installments, one now and next year
- United rejected Penarol’s attempt to bring it back
Penroll officials have revealed details of a 10 10 million signing with Manchester United’s Olu Trafford club and Uruguay’s Fasundo Pelistri that he may not have paid his ransom.
The 18-year-old winger moved to United before the end of the transfer window on Monday and is expected to make his way to the first-team squad of Ole Gunnar Sosczayer this season.
However, according to Penarol’s secretary Everesto Gonzalez, United told the Uruguayan club that it had violated the club’s policy of paying Pellisri’s release and sent money directly instead.

The right-wing winger is expected to go straight to Ole Gunnar Solskazir’s first-team squad.
Gonzalez told the Uruguayan outlet referee: ‘At one point in the discussion with Manchester they told me:’ We do not pay for the release clauses because of the club’s policy, so we send money directly to the club and you have solved this problem. ‘
Penarol vice-president Rodolfo Cantino said United would pay two for Pelistri, his immediate and second year next year.
He said: ‘Everything was agreed upon, even the form of money. There are two payments, one now and the other in July 2021, which we accepted because Manchester United is a frontline club. ‘
Gonzalez added that Penrall had asked if they could keep Pelistri on loan for a while, but United rejected the offer, saying he would feature in the coming months.
Penarol chiefs say United have rejected efforts to keep Palestri a little longer.
He said: ‘Of course we wanted it, we tried our best but they argued that they wanted the player now.
‘It’s normal, when a European team buys a player from you, they force him to travel immediately.
‘Palestry goes straight to the first team. He’s going to play. During the discussion they asked me if I could guarantee them if he was in the bubble because they needed him.
‘Then if the manager uses him, it will matter.’
Palestri has signed a five-year deal at Old Trafford and is expected to join the team directly.
United signed the teenager after failing to sign alternatives such as English and Borussia Dortmund star Jaden Sancho and Barcelona’s Osman Dembele without receiving their first summer number one post.
Pelistri was born in Uruguay but the Spaniards have a second nationality which means United do not have to wait for a work permit.
