The fact that United have chosen to hold fresh talks with Pelestri shows how highly the player is valued by Ten Hag.
Ten Hag spoke of Pellistri and its great potential. Pelestri himself once said that he has complete faith in his coach and that this will make him hungry to succeed and win trophies.
