Manchester United youngster Alejandro Garnacho is attracting interest from a number of clubs, including Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), according to 90min (h/t Manchester Evening News).
Other teams keeping an eye on the Argentine are Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea and Arsenal. However, the Red Devils are not worried about the 18-year-old’s future.
His current contract runs until 2025 and the Old Trafford outfit are confident Garnacho will sign a new deal during the World Cup break. The club are already in talks with the 18-year-old to extend his stay in Manchester long-term.

The Argentina international has quickly become a fan favorite this season. His impressive cameos as a substitute have seen us win games in the latter stages of a game.
First, in the Carabao Cup match against Aston Villa on 10 November, Garnacho came on in the 62nd minute and provided two assists. United scored a 4-2 win against the Lions to progress to the next round, where they face Burnley.
In the Red Devils’ final game before the mid-season break for the prestigious tournament in Qatar, the 18-year-old scored a stoppage-time winner against Fulham. He was substituted on the pitch in the 72nd minute at Craven Cottage and secured us all three points in a 2-1 win.

Garnatxo has enjoyed a meteoric rise in recent weeks. The striker has been given opportunities and has made the most of them. However, he will not join Lionel Sacaloni’s Argentina squad to compete in the Middle East for the gold trophy.
