Garnacho looks a promising talent after impressing at youth level for Atletico, and it could be that a move to United is a good one for him in the next phase of his development.

The Red Devils have a proud history of trusting and promoting youth, so Garnacho may well find first-team opportunities in the not too distant future if he continues to impress.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given opportunities to a number of young players in his time as United manager, most notably Mason Greenwood, who has grabbed the chance with both hands.

MUFC supporters will no doubt be hoping they have another exciting talent for the future on their hands with the signing of Garnacho.

Although this move has not yet been officially confirmed, Marca make it sound like it’s all but done.
