Alejandro Garnacho set for ‘significant’ pay rise with new Manchester United contract

Manchester United starlet Alejandro Garnacho is set for a ‘significant’ pay rise with his new contract at the Red Devils, according to The Times (Subscription Required) [h/t Daily Mail].

Currently, the Argentine national earns £7,000 a week. However, that is expected to go up considerably once the 18-year-old puts pen to paper on a new deal and extends his stay at the Old Trafford side.

The forward’s existing contract is set to expire in the summer of 2024. However, he is close to agreeing new terms, with the Manchester-based club keen on securing the youngster’s long-term future.

Garnacho’s pay rise will match his increasing influence in Erik ten Hag’s plans. The 18-year-old’s displays have led to interest from European giants Real Madrid as well.

The Argentine has burst onto the scene in the current campaign. Initially, the youngster was made to wait for his opportunities in the team. However, the forward has been influential since making his full debut in the Europa League against Sheriff Tiraspol.

Subsequently, Garnacho has put in some clutch performances for United. The 18-year-old scored his debut goal for the first team against Real Sociedad in the UEL in San Sebastian.

Then, the youngster scored in stoppage time to hand the Red Devils three points in the 2-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage. He also assisted Marcus Rashford’s winner versus Manchester City at home.

The forward has made a difference coming off the bench on several occasions. Thankfully, Ten Hag has found a good option, with some other attackers not living up to expectations under the Dutch manager.
