In a recent report, The Independent stated that Real Madrid are keeping tabs on Manchester United starlet Alejandro Garnacho. It has been claimed that Los Blancos are eyeing a move to acquire the services of the Spanish youngster.
Garnacho’s Impressive Form In Manchester This Season
Garnacho has managed to break out as a first-team starter at Old Trafford during this campaign and has put in a few eye-catching performances for Man United on the left wing. The 18-year-old has already made 17 appearances for the Red Devils this season, netting two goals and grabbing five assists across multiple competitions.
The Madrid-born talent has proven his worth by averaging 2.3 shots, 1.3 key passes and 2.3 dribbles per 90 minutes in the EFL Cup. He has even been excellent with his ball distribution after making 89% of his attempted passes in the League Cup (stats via whoscored).
His current contract at the Theatre of Dreams is set to expire in the summer of 2024. Thus, Real Madrid should focus on getting a deal done for him on a cut-price fee at the end of this campaign.
Real Madrid Are Monitoring Garnacho: Is He A Prospect For The Future?
Garnacho is a technically gifted footballer who can make a few promising runs with the ball in the final third. He has got the vision to engineer some decent chances for his teammates on the attacking end of the field. The Argentine whizkid can even strike the ball from all ranges and is a good finisher in front of the opposition goal when he is playing regularly on the pitch.
At 18, the future is quite promising for the Spain-born talent as long as he continues to develop his all-around game each year. Thus, the Madrid giants should focus on getting a deal done for the Man United youngster soon as he is good enough to keep Vinicius Junior on his toes in the race to secure a regular starting spot at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.
Garnacho will also serve as an ideal replacement for Eden Hazard who has flattered to deceive with his performances at Real Madrid this season. All in all, he is undoubtedly a prospect to watch out for in the coming seasons and would be a great acquisition for Los Blancos in the long run.
