Alejandro Garnacho arrives in Manchester ahead of sealing academy switch

Alejandro Garnacho has arrived in Manchester ahead of sealing his transfer to Manchester United.

The Atletico Madrid youngster was reported by Marca to have agreed to sign with United.

Now the teenage striker has flown into Manchester, as pictures from his Instagram feed show.


United beat strong competition

United managed to beat competition from Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid to sign Garnacho, Marca reported.

Atletico also tried to keep him, but he was reportedly set on furthering his career at United.

Garnacho is the third signing from Spain in an impressive youth recruitment drive this summer for the academy.

He is also the third striker to join United’s under-18 side, along with Joe Hugill and Charlie McNeill.

United’s under-23 side lacks strikers, so there is a good opportunity for one of them to make a quick step up if they can impress.

Garnacho will have to quarantine for a fortnight, and the transfer will need to be subject to international clearance paperwork, before he can get started.
