    Alejandro Garnacho is set to sign a new deal at Manchester United that will see his salary increase tenfold.

    The 18-year-old has made a stunning breakthrough at Old Trafford and he was awarded the club’s player of the month for November.

    Garnacho scored twice and provided three assists in four appearances, including an injury time winner against Fulham last week.

    The 18-year-old joined the club from Atletico Madrid in 2020 for a fee of around £600,000.

    His performances have already alerted Real Madrid and Barcelona, who are keeping a keen eye on the Argentine’s contract situation.

    Garnacho is out of contract in 18 months’ time and earns a basic salary of around £5,000-a-week.

    However, the Sun report that he’s set to sign a new deal worth £50,000-a-week to deter suitors from Spain.

    Erik ten Hag has slowly embedded the winger into his first team squad and he’s been denied a spot in the dressing room in a bid to keep the teenager’s feet on the ground.

    The Dutchman was unhappy with Garnacho’s attitude on the pre-season tour and kept him back from the squad in the early months of the season as a consequence.

    United are aware of the level of talent that Garnacho possesses and do not want to give him too much, too early at the Theatre of Dreams.

    However, with Garnacho’s situation means United’s hand has been forced.
