United confident Garnacho will sign a new contract

Manchester United are confident that teenage wonderkid Alejandro Garnacho will sign a new contract with the club.

The Manchester Evening News report that talks are ongoing with the Argentine over fresh terms at Old Trafford.

The report says discussions are progressing well and although there has been no breakthrough yet, United are confident that there will be.

Garnacho only signed his first professional contract when he turned 17 last July by penning a deal until 2025 but the fresh terms will reflect his progress since then.

Garnacho in talks over new contract

Juventus are apparently among the clubs interested in signing the teenage talent, which is not surprising given his quality and potential.

United are clearly keen to tie him down, and his value could rocket once again by the end of the year with the World Cup on the horizon.

In March, the Argentine press got very excited about the ‘incredible‘ talent they have on their hands after his senior call-up.

He remains an outside bet to go to Qatar, but if he does exactly that and shines, his star will continue to rise.

It also remains to be seen how big a part of Erik ten Hag’s plans Garnacho turns out to be.

His senior international recognition suggests he is a player who can make an impact for United and the new boss has a reputation for developing young starlets.

It would be good to get his future resolved before the start of pre-season, when he should get a chance to impress his new manager.
