According to information obtained by ESPN, Manchester United's youngster Alejandro Garnacho has "reached an agreement in principle" to sign a "five-year contract" with the Premier League club.

The 18-year-old winger, who is still eligible to play for both Spain and Argentina's senior international teams, is under contract until June 2024 and will add five years to his current deal with Manchester United.

The only things pending finishing in this new deal are details pertaining to aspects related to "Garnacho's image rights," says ESPN citing sources close to the negotiations.

This news ends the saga of rumors linking PSG, Juventus, Real Madrid, and other giants around Europe chasing the forward for months on end trying to poach him out of Manchester with the winger about to enter the final year of his contract. No luck for the chasers this time.

Garnacho will get his salary "adjusted according to his new status" in Manchester United. The youngster has appeared in 27 games for his team, scoring three goals. The new deal will include "progressive increases" in terms of the salary Garnacho will receive, with those bumps linked to a "growth of his role in the team."

Fellow Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is in a very similar situation to that of Garnacho. On Tuesday, Ben Jacobs reported the willingness of Rashford and Man Utd to ink an extension while also confirming the talks between PSG's president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and the England international last summer.

Garnacho joined Manchester United from Atletico Madrid in 2020 and was close to make the final senior squad of Argentina for the last World Cup, ultimately missing on getting Lionel Scaloni's call.
