Man Utd in talks with Alejandro Garnacho over contract extension as Erik ten Hag looks to tie down 18-year-old

MANCHESTER UNITED will push to offer Alejandro Garnacho a new and improved contract, according to reports.

The 18-year-old has enjoyed a stunning breakthrough into Erik ten Hag’s first team this season.

And the Red Devils are keen to offer the young winger fresh terms, according to Fabrizio Romano.

It’s claimed discussions between United and Garnacho’s camp are currently ongoing.

Boss Ten Hag is thought to want to tie down the teenager to a long-term deal.

Garnacho came off the bench to score a stunning last-minute winner against Fulham just before the World Cup.

He has also dazzled in the Europa League and Carabao Cup this campaign.

SunSport exclusively revealed last month Garnacho is set for a TENFOLD salary increase to fend off any interest from Real Madrid.

United want to add three years to his deal that already runs until 2024, while rocketing his salary to £50,000-a-week, with further incremental rises.

The youngster has been linked with a potential move to Madrid after his recent rise to stardom.


But when goalkeeper David De Gea was recently asked by Spanish reporters about Real’s interest in Garnacho, he declared: “We won’t let him leave.”

Garnacho joined United’s academy from Atletico Madrid in 2020.

He has started just one Premier League game this season, but could be handed a key role when the campaign resumes after the World Cup.

Especially after Cristiano Ronaldo was axed by the Red Devils following his bombshell interview with Piers Morgan.

Ronaldo is currently a free agent.
