MANCHESTER UNITED fans are fuming at reports linking Facundo Pellistri with a loan move.
The Uruguayan winger is set to join Sheffield United on a temporary basis.

Supporters are not happy with the idea of him being allowed to leave, though, with one tweeting: “Should be Antony leaving ffs.”
Another added: “He’s their best winger right now, don’t get this.”
A third fan also wrote: “Would rather loan Antony.”
Meanwhile, one more commented: “Send Antony there instead.”
Pellestri impressed fans during pre-season, with several calling for him to be given more minutes this term.
Since making his United debut in January, he has made just 12 competitive appearances for the club.
His opportunities have been limited as he competes with Antony for a starting spot on the right wing.
However, Antony has started both matches so far this season, although he is yet to score or assist.
The Brazilian has come in for criticism from fans since arriving at Old Trafford last summer.
Since his move from Ajax, he has scored eight goals and added three assists in 46 appearances.
