Atletico Madrid are reportedly interested in re-signing Alejandro Garnacho from Manchester United if there is an opportunity.
According to Fichajes, Atletico Madrid are one of the clubs keeping track of Alejandro Garnacho’s situation. The Manchester United star has forced his way into Erik ten Hag’s plans this season. Clubs could take advantage of his contractual situation next summer.
Alejandro Garnacho is a name already close to Manchester Unites supporters following a few promising displays for the club this season. The youngster has broken into the first team this term and put in some commanding displays for Erik ten Hag’s side.
The Manchester United prodigy took full advantage of the circumstances surrounding Jadon Sancho and Anthony Elanga to garner minutes in the first team. He scored once in the Premier League and netted in the Europa League.
Garnacho remains contracted until 2024, with Manchester United holding the option of another year. The Old Trafford fans are a bit worried despite the somewhat relaxed situation with the youngster. Clubs from Madrid are sniffing around for the attacker alongside a few top English sides.
Real Madrid are also interested in signing Garnacho, and considering he is Spanish born; they believe he might feel inclined to return. However, he is a homegrown product of their arch-rivals, Atletico Madrid, who are keen to re-sign the winger from Manchester United.
The Manchester United prodigy was in Atletico’s system only two years ago. They let him join the Red Devils for a paltry sum of under 500k, which they might regret in the current circumstances. They may make a fresh approach to re-sign him from Old Trafford.
Whether Garnacho remains interested in such a move remains the question, although he might get tempted by a return to Spain and his city of birth. Atletico considers him important as the Manchester United prodigy is a homegrown talent and will benefit them.
For now, Ten Hag values Garnacho highly and will not be in the mood to entertain any approaches. If anything is to transpire, then the summer window shall be where Garnacho could have a say in the situation. He will technically have a year left on his deal and come into a strong position to make a future decision.
A replacement player in the attacking setup will become necessary, with Atletico likely to sell Joao Felix around that period. For now, he remains a Manchester United player, and the club will likely seek to offer him a new deal if the attacker keeps up with his performance levels.
