Real Madrid and Barcelona are interested in signing Manchester United talent Alejandro Garnacho in the summer.
According to reports, Alejandro Garnacho, a star prospect for Manchester United, is wanted by Arsenal, Real Madrid, and Barcelona.
This season, Garnacho has performed admirably for United, especially in the Europa League group stage.
Throughout the competition, Red Devils manager Erik ten Hag has given opportunities to a number of younger players, but Garnacho is the one starlet who has seized his opportunity.
The Argentine came off the bench as United lost 1-0 to Real Sociedad in the competition’s opening match.
He continued on to start back-to-back games against Sheriff Tiraspol and Sociedad to finish the group stages. In the latter, his goal led to a 1-0 victory.
After coming off the bench once more against Fulham on Sunday, the 18-year-old scored the game-winning goal to put United three points behind the leaders with a match remaining against fourth-place Tottenham.
In an Instagram post after scoring, Red Devils club captain Harry Maguire called the Argentinian a “special talent.”
Ten Hag said the following about Garnacho’s growth following Fulham’s victory (via Eurosport): “First, he exhibits the mentality you require.
Under pressure, he performs, he comes in, he makes an impact, and he has the conviction. once every three to four days. That is excellent, then.
“I’m really pleased that we can develop a young player, and it demonstrates that opportunities are given to players who merit them. The first one is that, but we need to bring more.
“He’s great. He has a strong belief, which I like because it makes him easy to work with. Football appeals to him. He is truly enjoyable.”
Other European powerhouses are now paying attention to Garnacho’s performances.
Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Arsenal are all pursuing Garnacho.
The Argentinian joined United from Atletico Madrid in 2020, and 90min reports that the club is eager to extend his contract.
Real Madrid and Barcelona, as well as Arsenal, are reportedly keeping an eye on the youngster and are interested in bringing him back to Spain.
Given that it is almost unimaginable that United would even consider allowing one of their top young talents to join a Premier League rival, the interest of the Gunners, along with Chelsea, is intriguing.
The Red Devils are reportedly “calm” about Garnacho’s current situation, despite interest from Spain and other European powerhouses like PSG, Bayern Munich, and Borussia Dortmund.
They are certain that he will sign a new contract to extend his stay at Old Trafford past the end of his current one, which runs out in the summer of 2025. It would seem that United still has the upper hand in this particular situation.
