His fate is yet to be secured, but Spanish publication SPORT are clearly impressed by Garnacho, as they have claimed that the United youngster was one of the ‘most outstanding strikers’ of Atletico Madrid’s academy. United paid around £400k in compensation after signing the player back in 2020, but they see him more as an attacking midfielder.
Garnacho has since signed a professional contract at Old Trafford and it’s now expected he’ll take the ‘dream’ Argentina offer as the report detailed: “Now he will fulfil another [dream]: wear the Argentine shirt, that of his mother’s country and train alongside Lionel Messi and the champions of South America.”
The youngster may be drawing comparisons to Messi, but he is expected to break into the United team just as Ronaldo once did. And it’s rather fitting that it will be exactly 20 years later that Garnacho could make his debut at the age of 18, just as the Portuguese star did in 2003.
