Alejandro Garnacho wanted by over 20 clubs on loan
Manchester United fans are understandably worried ahead of their Premier League opener. Erik ten Hag will start the season with an even weaker side compared to the one that finished a disappointing sixth last season.
Only three players – Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez have arrived at Old Trafford with United still struggling to secure the Frenkie de Jong deal down the line.
But it’s not all bleak, especially with the emergence of so many academy stars. The likes of Zidane Iqbal and Charlie Savage impressed during pre-season.

But the only academy product fans really want to see a chance this season is Alejandro Garnacho. The Argentine youngster was instrumental in United’s FA Youth Cup triumph and has already made two appearances for the first team.
When he featured against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday, the 18-year-old was the brightest spark for the Red Devils despite Cristiano Ronaldo being on the pitch.
Garnacho interest through the roof
His cunning, pace and finishing ability have impressed everyone and Ten Hag has quite a decision to make on whether to allow the Argentina U-20 international to leave on loan or play him in the games. of the Europa League.
According The mirror, Garnacho is a hot property across Europe with up to 20 clubs requesting his services. Teams from England, Spain, Germany, Italy and Scotland have all asked United about the former Atletico Madrid starlet.
Ten Hag, a huge admirer of the youngster, ponders what will be the best course of action so as not to stall his development at this stage of his career.
“Ten Hag wonders if the environment is right for Garnacho to thrive as United find their feet under their new boss after a disappointing underperforming campaign last season. The Dutchman hinted fans will have to be patient as he delivers his message to the stars of United – and it may not be easy,” the article mentions.
Ten Hag’s Major Decision
Garnacho’s agent Eugenio Ascari has already spoken to the club about his client and it’s possible the Madrid striker will be on loan until January to gain valuable first-team experience.
However, the senior officials are reluctant to let Garnacho go and believe he will benefit from his first-team presence for now and a decision on his loan can be taken later in January.
Interestingly, he hasn’t been named in the United U-21 squad for their PL2 opener and that opens the door for involvement in United’s opener. If not right off the bat, Garnacho can certainly make a huge impact if used from the bench, especially with The absence of Anthony Martial.
