Most of the recent talks around Manchester United have been surrounding incomings and outgoings, and understandably so as it is pretty clear that the squad needs a major overhaul after failing to win a trophy in five straight seasons. Erik ten Hag has arrived as the new manager and will surely be looking to leave his mark on things.

Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard, Edinson Cavani, Jesse Lingard and a few others are believed to be on their way out of Old Trafford. On the other hand, players like Frenkie de Jong, Jurrien Timber and others are being linked as potential signings.

It will also be important for the club though, to extend the deals of those who they believe could have big futures in the senior team. One such player is Alejandro Garnacho.

There has been a lot of hype surrounding the youngster, as he is considered by many to be the next big thing in Argentine football, although he is eligible to represent Spain as well. As tweeted out by Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United are working on a new deal for Garnacho, talks have already started and their plan is to offer a five year deal to him.

Garnacho has been getting a lot of attention lately. Not only has he made his senior debut for Manchester United already but was also called up to the Argentina senior team’s squad.

Thus, the future looks very bright for the youngster who has represented both Spain and Argentina at the youth level.

Manchester United will be hoping that he remains at the club for the foreseeable future, as he has tremendous potential and the sky looks like the limit if he can develop over the next few years into the player that he can be considering the talent that he has. Still just 17 years of age though, there is plenty of time to do that.
