Good news coming out of Man United as popular star set to sign new contract

Posted by

Man United have moved closer to tieing future star Alejandro Garnacho down to a new long-term contract as a deal in principle has reportedly been agreed between the player and the Manchester club.

Negotiations over an improved contract have been underway for several months with Garnacho’s current deal expiring in 2024, however, new terms appear close to being finalised as reported by ESPN.

The contract is reportedly a five-year deal, which will keep the 18-year-old at Old Trafford throughout his development towards his prime years. The Argentina star will receive a pay rise as a result of his growing importance to Erik ten Hag, but it is uncertain how much that will be.

According to the report, the final stumbling block before a pen can be put to paper is an issue regarding image rights. However, that isn’t expected to be a concern as the deal edges closer.
