Manchester United’s Facundo Pellistri has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, and the youngster was expected to come forward against Watford this weekend.
Although the Uruguayan has yet to make a senior appearance for the Red Devils, BUT reported that he had been promoted to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first team roster and was in line to make his FA Cup debut against Watford this weekend.
However, it appears that Pellitri’s hopes of debuting with Man United this weekend have now ended, with his agency, Team TMA, on Twitter apparently confirming that he tested positive for COVID-19.

We await official confirmation from Man United or the player himself, but this news appears to be credible, which is very unfortunate for Pellistri and disappointing for United fans who were hoping to see him in action this weekend.
Team TMA notes that Pellstri does not experience any symptoms, which is at least one positive.
