Manchester United to hand Alejandro Garnacho £50k p/w deal - report

Argentine wonderkid Alejandro Garnacho will be awarded a whopping new deal at Manchester United soon, according to The Sun.

The 18-year-old has emerged as an upcoming star at Old Trafford this season having scored his first goal in a 1-0 win away at Real Sociedad in the Champions League before netting a last-gasp winner at Fulham in the Premier League.

As a result of his exceptional start to life in the Red Devils’ senior team, and to waive off interest from other clubs, United are thought to be increasing his wage salary tenfold.

His new deal, should he sign it, will be worth £50,000 per week rather than the £5,000 per week he currently earns after his move to Manchester United from Atletico Madrid in 2020.

Garnacho has already received a senior call-up with Argentina although he failed to make their Qatar World Cup squad, unlike Old Trafford teammate Lisandro Martinez.

Hair-raising

He may only have five Premier League appearances to his name so far but he already has Manchester United fans in a trance whenever he gets the ball in a wide area.

Electrifying pace coupled with an already impressive end product has made him instantly loved by the Old Trafford faithful and while he is still waiting for his first senior goal at home, it will only be a matter of time.

The Argentine has taken to senior football so quickly that it is often hard to spot how young he is because he plays with such maturity that it could just as easily be Jadon Sancho on the left wing.

Erik Ten Hag clearly wants him to stay in Manchester badly and is willing to offer a huge sum of money to make him do so.

There could easily be concern over his attitude if he starts to earn too much money too soon as has been seen in the past at Carrington but while he is performing on the pitch, he can have what he likes.

In other Manchester United news, the Red Devils have been snubbed by this Italian starlet who would prefer to remain in his homeland.
