Eagle eyed Manchester United fans spotted a new face in first team training earlier this week when two seconds of a two-minute video clip showed Alejandro Garnacho.

Now the teenage forward has shared a handful of official images from the training session alongside a number of first team stars, tagging them in the pictures.

Settling in

It was a no-brainer for Manchester United to get Garnacho involved with the first team after a terrific academy season.

The youngster has just been called into the Argentina national squad where he trained alongside Lionel Messi, and if he is good enough for them, he is certainly up the challenge of training with United’s stars.

Garnacho has struck 15 goals for the academy this season and provided six assists. Five of those goals have come in five FA Youth Cup games, helping United reach the final which is due to be played next month.

With first team results uninspired, there is a case to start mixing Garnacho in before the end of the season.

Hannibal was also among the players in training, while United had also welcomed back Cristiano Ronaldo.

The team are preparing for a first team fixture against Everton on Saturday, while Garnacho and Hannibal will likely drop down to the under-23s.

The under-23s are in action on Friday night against Chelsea at 7pm in a match which will be held at Old Trafford.
