Manchester United: Insider insists Garnacho closing in on a new contract

Manchester United: Insider insists Garnacho closing in on a new contract - Manchester United News

Reporter Alex Crook has revealed on TalkSport that Alejandro Garnacho is close to signing a new contract at Manchester United.

The Lowdown: A stunning breakout season

Manchester United are at the start of their revolution under Erik ten Hag, but some parts have undoubtedly progressed quicker than others as they find themselves in a title race and a Carabao Cup final.

Certain players have also taken major steps forward in their careers, with Marcus Rashford now one of the most in-form players across Europe and youngster Garnacho has proven himself more than capable of performing at this level.

The young winger is still on a basic contract given his age, and that prior to this season, he’d made just two first-team appearances. But now with eight goal involvements this season to his name, he looks set to be rewarded with a bumper deal.

The Latest: Garnacho set for a new contract

According to Crook, everything is edging closer to the Argentinian penning a new deal at Old Trafford which would likely see his wages take a significant boost.

He said: “Another player close to agreeing a new deal, I’m told, at Man United is young Alejandro Garnacho. That will be a long-term contract as well, and I was told yesterday progress is being made on that, so it might not be too long until we get an announcement that he’s committed his future to Manchester United.”

The Verdict: Smart move from everyone involved

It makes sense for Man United and Garnacho to get a new deal thrashed out as soon as possible as if he keeps performing at his current level this season, more clubs could start to take a keen interest in the winger, though talk of a new and improved deal would surely also give the teenager the confidence that Man United believe in him.

Garnacho has been afforded 13 league appearances this season, which may well have been unthinkable at the start of the campaign, but it’s a testament to the work he and Ten Hag will have done behind the scenes that he has risen to prominence at Old Trafford this term.

It has previously been reported that a new contract offer from Man United could see Garnacho go from a weekly wage of around £5,000 to £20,000, which will be life-changing for the winger, while the Red Devils won’t be ruining their wage structure by raising his salary.
