Manchester United have signed wonderkid Garnacho on a long term deal 

Alejandro Garnacho looks set to receive a significant pay rise after he signed a new contract at Manchester United, keeping him at the club until 2028

(Football news) Manchester United’s wonderkid Alejandro Garnacho has signed a long term contract on Friday. The Argentine teenager’s new deal will see at Old Trafford until June 2028. On the other hand, United manager Erik ten Hag told the media that he will not be allowed to miss the end of the domestic season to represent Argentina at the Under-20s World Cup.

Garnacho was reportedly asked by Javier Mascherano to join up with his international teammates for the U-20 World Cup between May 20 and June 11. That would have meant that the teenager was set to miss out United’s final three Premier League fixtures against Bournemouth, Chelsea and Fulham and also the FA Cup final against Manchester City on June 3. The 19-year-old is slowly but steadily becoming a regular within Erik ten Hag’s starting 11.

This season he has managed four goals and four assists in all competitions and he also scored the winning goal against Fulham in November. However, an ankle injury against Southampton has somewhat hindered his progress, the youngster has become an integral part of the squad as he is sorely missed in attack. Garnacho returned to training and if all things go right we could see him in the matchday squad against Aston Villa as the United look to consolidate their position in the top 4.

According to several reports, Garnacho is offered 10 times the money on his current salary. If the reports are true then the teenager would see his wage increase from £5,000 per-week to £50,000. While the winger’s pay packet is expected to sky-rocket in the future while David De Gea is reportedly set to take a pay cut, as Ten Hag and the United backroom staff attempt to lower the club’s wage bill.

Asked whether Garnacho would join up with Argentina’s Under 20s, Ten Hag said: “No, we don’t release him. Garnacho would step up his comeback on Friday.”

“He will return tomorrow in team training, partial, and then we have to see when he can return totally in the team training and then back into games,” Ten Hag added.

“When I joined this incredible club, I dreamt of achieving my debut, playing at Old Trafford, scoring my first goal and winning trophies with this badge on my chest,” Garnacho said in a statement. I feel very proud and emotional to have experienced these moments already, together with my family who have supported me every step of the way.

“We are all humbled to have this chance to continue our journey at Manchester United and I have already begun to work on achieving the next set of targets and ambitions. The manager and his coaching staff have helped me to improve in every way, and with their support, I am developing each day to help the team to be successful. I am relishing the future and can’t wait to create more special memories with this group, in front of our amazing supporters.” Garnacho added.
