Man Utd wonderkid Alejandro Garnacho dines out with family and agent as he closes in on quadruple-your-money deal | The SunFebruary 7, 2023
MANCHESTER UNITED star Alejandro Garnacho joined his agent for a bite to eat as they close in on his new QUADRUPLE-your-money contract.
The 18-year-old Argentine has burst into the first-team this season under Erik ten Hag, scoring two goals and producing two assists.
Reports emerged last month that United were planning to tie down Garnacho to a long-term deal.
That was amid speculation that both Real Madrid and Juventus were plotting a swoop for him.
Atletico Madrid were also keen on snapping up Garnacho but his future appears to lie at Old Trafford.
It is believed the winger has agreed a wage of £30,000 a week – up from his current £7k weekly package.

The length of the deal is reportedly five-and-a-half-years – and the ace and his closest comrades looked to be in a celebratory mood on Monday.
Garnacho was spotted out with his family and agent, Carlos Cambeiro, at the popular CIBO restaurant in Hale.
The winger and his representative were joined by the United man’s brother, mother and father at the establishment before they departed and went their separate ways.
It comes just days after Garnacho was told to accept being taken off just minutes after coming on as substitute against Crystal Palace.

The South American replaced Wout Weghorst in the 59th minute of United’s 2-1 victory over the Eagles but he lasted just half an hour before Harry Maguire was brought on in his place following midfielder Casemiro’s red card for throttling Will Hughes.
Ten Hag said: “It’s not always nice bringing off a player who we brought on but it’s in the interests of the team and the player has to accept that.”
Garnacho was a product of Atletico Madrid's youth system after arriving from Getafe in 2015.
But he made the move to United for £420,000 in 2020 and has gone from strength-to-strength this term.
