Alejandro Garnacho won’t be moving from Old Trafford to the Santiago Bernabeu, according to goalkeeper David de Gea, who has issued a warning to Real Madrid.
Goalkeeper David de Gea of Manchester United has made it obvious to Real Madrid that young sensation Alejandro Garnacho won’t be leaving Old Trafford anytime soon.
This season, Garnacho has become a bright spot for the Red Devils after scoring twice in five starts across all competitions.
This included a dramatic injury-time victory for United at Fulham in their final Premier League game before the World Cup break.
Two years after moving to the United States for £300,000 from Atletico Madrid when he was just 16 years old, the kid is drawing interest from all around the world.
In particular, Los Blancos want to be in charge of Garnacho’s trip back to the Spanish capital.
According to rumors, Real Madrid is closely monitoring his progress and is aware that the 18-year-old’s contract with United expires in 18 months.
While Garnacho already earns £5,000 per week, United is making every effort to bind him to a new, long-term contract that would dramatically boost his pay.
On Saturday, Erik ten Hag’s team played Real Betis in another midseason friendly, but much like their match against Cadiz, they were defeated, this time by a score of 1-0.
Garnacho received playing time in both games, and after the second one, the Spanish media questioned him about the future of his club.
De Gea interrupted him before he could finish his sentence by saying, “We won’t let him escape.”
Garnacho may believe that United is the best environment for his growth, despite the fact that Real Madrid will give it their all considering that he is logging consistent first-team minutes there.
The increased offer from United is rumored to include a pay raise of £45,000 per week, which will undoubtedly interest the winger after manager Ten Hag cautioned him before the World Cup that he must strive to maintain his momentum in the second half of the season.
The exploits of Garnacho at Craven Cottage in the middle of November prompted Ten Hag to comment, “It demonstrates that he has the talent, a fantastic talent, but he has a long way to go.
He needs to invest heavily since it will be obvious whenever he plays. Given his current momentum and the upcoming four-week vacation, he is in danger. We will have to manage that, but I have no doubt that we can.
Four weeks without a game is dangerous. He must maintain the same frame of mind that he has displayed throughout the previous four to five weeks.
He is outstanding. He starts by demonstrating the mindset you require. Under pressure, he performs, shows up, has an impact, and has conviction. Twice in three to four days, which is excellent.”
