Manchester United are pushing hard to extend youngster Alejandro Garnacho’s stay at the club, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Lowdown: Garnacho a special prospect
The 18-year-old has burst onto the scene in explosive fashion at United, looking like one of the most exciting young prospects there in years.
Worryingly, the Argentine is out of contract at United at the end of this season, however, so they desperately need to try and sort a new deal as soon as possible.
The Latest: New deal close?
Writing on Twitter on Monday, Romano claimed that the Red Devils are working hard on securing a new contract for Garnacho:
“Man United will push again to extend Alejandro Garnacho’s contract, talks are ongoing.”
The Verdict: Simply have to tie him down
At this point, it would be an absolutely huge blow for United to lose Garnacho next summer, especially as it would mean him departing on a free transfer.
He is a special young footballer who they need to tie down for many years to come, also making sure they are in a strong bargaining position, should another club ever come calling.
United colleague Lisandro Martinez has said that Garnacho has ‘no ceiling’ as a player, which is massive praise, and he possesses both the natural ability and touch of arrogance that could make him the next great attacking hero at Old Trafford.
