Garnacho is getting closer to signing a new long-term contract with Manchester United. The player and the club have agreed on terms in principle.
This season, Garnacho is a in highlights as Manchester United rising star. A boy having good progression from a scrappy teenager with an evident attitude problem to the club’s future superstar potential.
The Argentine has wowed Old Trafford fans with his direct running, cleverness, and goal-scoring powers. Thus, United believes to qualify him for a new deal.
Garnacho’s present contract is due to expire in 2024. The negotiations are being going for some months, but new terms appear to be nearing conclusion.
Garnacho looks to be in agreement with the club on a five-year deal, with the only stumbling block being an issue over the player’s image rights. Nonetheless, this may not be the problem.
After emerging as a major character in Erik ten Hag’s squad, the 18-year-old will benefit from a significant pay raise that will take him from an academy income to a first-team player’s wage – and it will improve progressively as he gets more engaged.
Garnacho has flourished in the spotlight, appearing unafraid of the expectations placed on him and early comparisons to some of the club’s best players.
The parties in contract discussions are allegedly eager to complete the new agreement as soon as possible in order to avoid distractions during a vital phase in the season, with United still competing in four competitions.
The explosive winger now has appeared in 25 games and scored three goals for United’s senior side this season.
Yet, with parties submitting bids to buy Manchester United, the search for a new owner is set to speed up.
