Guillermo Varela leaves Manchester United for Penarol return

Alejandro Moreno responds to Jose Mourinho's belief that Man United will be able to compete with Europe's best in two years.

Manchester United have confirmed that defender Guillermo Varela has re-joined former club Penarol.

Varela, 24, joined United from Penarol in 2013 on a five-year contract during David Moyes' reign but has now been allowed to return to the Uruguayan club.

A statement on United's Twitter account read: ".@Guille_Varela4 has left #MUFC to rejoin Penarol. All the best for the future, Guillermo!"

Varela had limited impact at Old Trafford. After a loan spell at Real Madrid Castilla in 2014-15, he made four Premier League appearances under Louis van Gaal in the season that followed but was unable to establish himself in the first-team squad.

Jose Mourinho allowed the right-back to join Eintracht Frankfurt last season, but his hopes of prolonging his stay in Germany ended after he got a tattoo against the club's wishes prior to the DFB Pokal final.

Earlier this month, the Manchester Evening News cited a source close to the player as saying: "Guillermo decided to play in Penarol for personal tranquillity.

"The player decided it after how badly he was treated in Frankfurt. His experience in Europe was not good. In 2017-18, Guillermo would have been making only £4,000 per week."
