According to a report from Dailymail, it was mentioned that Alejandro Garnacho has agreed to a new contract with Manchester United that offers him a progressively increasing salary. It was stated that the youngster has agreed to a long-term deal which extends his contract for five years at Old Trafford.
Garnacho’s Breakout Season With Manchester United So Far
The Madrid-born winger has had a tremendous career with United’s youth team as he rose through the ranks in the academy. He is enjoying a brilliant campaign with the Red Devils as he has found the back of the net on three occasions and created four assists for them over 17 appearances this season across all competitions.
The Argentine youngster has been a sporadic member of Ten Hag’s first team after averaging 1.2 shots and 0.8 dribbles per game in the Premier League. He has also been excellent with his ball distribution in the final third after completing 81.6% of his attempted passes in the English top flight (stats via whoscored).
His current contract at Old Trafford is set to expire in the summer of 2024, so ten Hag has done well to offer him a new contract to tie him down at the club for the long term as he is already attracting interest from some of the top clubs in Europe.
Good Move From Erik Ten Hag To Renew His Contract?
Garnacho is undoubtedly a phenomenal talent as he has proven to have immense potential in becoming one of the best in Europe in the foreseeable future. He has the ability to hold on to the ball and get out of tight situations as he remains adept at dribbling the ball at his feet. Furthermore, he has the vision to find his teammates on the run and can contribute by finding the back of the net when he is playing with confidence on the pitch.
The 18-year-old has made an immediate impact at Old Trafford that has been recognised by some of the top clubs in Europe. He remains a long-term prospect for United, which explains why they are eager to complete the deal as soon as possible before any other distractions come up amid a key time in the season as the Red Devils compete in four competitions.
