Alejandro Garnacho signs long-term deal at Manchester United

Alejandro Garnacho has signed a new long-term Manchester United contract which runs until June 2028.

The 18-year-old has impressed during his breakthrough season and his performances have earned himself a new deal.

Garnacho has scored four goals this campaign whist providing five assists in 29 appearances for the Red Devils first team.

“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.

“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.

John Murtough, Manchester United’s football director, said: “This new long-term contract reflects our confidence in him to continue his exciting development under the guidance of Erik and his staff. Alejandro has huge potential, and we are all looking forward to working with him to ensure he can fulfil his ambitions here at Manchester United in the coming years.”

The Argentine has returned to training following a period out after sustaining an injury in a goalless draw versus Southampton last month.

United host sixth-placed Aston Villa on Sunday at Old Trafford before travelling to the South Coast to face the high flying Seagulls Brighton and Hove Albion the following week.
