Alejandro Garnacho signed a new five-year contract with Manchester United last week to end any speculation over his future. Real Madrid have been rumoured to be interested in the youngster who has been out with injury since the middle of March, but the teenager has committed to United.

Speaking to the official site after his new deal was announced, Garnacho revealed how much it meant to him to play for United.

When I joined this incredible club, I dreamt of achieving my debut, playing at Old Trafford, scoring my first goal and winning trophies with this badge on my chest. I feel very proud and emotional to have experienced these moments already, together with my family who have supported me every step of the way. We are all humbled to have this chance to continue our journey at Manchester United and I have already begun to work on achieving the next set of targets and ambitions. 

The manager and his coaching staff have helped me to improve in every way, and with their support, I am developing each day to help the team to be successful. I am relishing the future and can’t wait to create more special memories with this group, in front of our amazing supporters.

The club have released a video which shows Erik ten Hag talking to Garnacho’s family about how much he deserves the new contract.
