Alejandro Garnacho could be handed number seven shirt at Manchester United.

Manchester United forward Alejandro Garnacho holds a significant value among the Premier League elite players.

Manchester United forward Alejandro Garnacho commands a price on par with the elite players in the Premier League. The Argentine got his big break into the United’s senior team in 2022 and continued to impress the footballing world.

Garnacho earned his promotion from the prestigious United Academy while the Red Devils were under the interim management of Ralf Rangnick. The Argentinian saw his reputation rise further under the guidance of current manager Erik ten Hag.

Ten Hag used the 19-year-old as a late substitute during the last season so that the youngster could target tired opposition. Garnacho has appeared in nine games this season for the Red Devils in all competitions contributing with one goal.

The CIES Football Observatory (h/t Manchester Evening News) has put the valuation of the youngster at €60m (approximately £50m). The valuation puts Garnacho at par with the likes of James Maddison, Jack Grealish, Bernardo Silva, Reece James, and Ederson. Furthermore, the Argentinian is worth as much as his senior teammates like Rasmus Hojlund, Mason Mount, Lisandro Martinez, and Jadon Sancho.

Bruno Fernandes, Antony, and Marcus Rashford are the only senior team members who received a bigger valuation than Garnacho. The only teenager valued higher than the Argentinian is Barcelona prodigy Gavi.

Ten Hag has managed Garnacho‘s usage wisely, avoiding the pressure that often accompanies wearing the United jersey. The 19-year-old’s pace, trickery, and technique have been a critical asset for the club to expose opposition defense.

Garnacho has shown his potential and abilities in the limited game time he has received so far. The Argentine is yet to prove himself as a regular starter for the Red Devils and build consistency.

The 19-year-old has been a delight for the Red Devil fanbase and everyone associated with the club. We think Garnacho deserves more starting role for the first team given the lack of attacking choices for Ten Hag. The Argentinian’s place in the senior squad is definitely secure and United fans will surely see his value rise further in the future.
