Will he follow in his idol’s footsteps? Garnacho is in Madrid’s sights

The rumor is growing in Madrid: the Whites want to sign Alejandro Garnacho in 2024.

Just like with Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid would be interested in taking over the services of Alejandro Garnacho one of Manchester United’s young stars.

According to The Sun, the White House sent talent scout Juni Calafat and his team to follow in the 19-year-old striker’s footsteps. In this way, the Madridistas sent a clear message to the Manchester board, which shielded the Albiceleste star in April with an agreement until 2028.

The “Bichito,” nicknamed because of its resemblance to his idol CR7, has gained traction in recent months and is expected to make headlines soon. Given this scenario, the English would not be willing to do that to negotiate the Argentine international’s departure to the White House.

However, the Meringues could negotiate hand-in-hand with Alejandro if United are against his departure. In this case, the Vikings would have to pay Garna’s termination clause, That would exceed 100 million euros.

For now, the idea of ​​seeing Alejandro Garnacho as a target is nothing more than a wish from Madrid fans who are just following in his footsteps. However, Madrid could formalize an offer for the young striker in 2024 and changing the course of Bichito’s sporting career.

On the other hand, this is not the first time that Garnacho has been linked to the white creature. In the Vikings’ last friendly match against the Red Devils, the boy was close to Vinícius Júnior, whom he asked for his jersey.

Is Garnacho’s future at United in danger?

A few days ago, United fans were growing impatient at the possibility of not having Garnacho as he was not on the Premier’s list. However, this moment remained only a shock, as what happened to the boy was due to a rule of the local tournament.

The English league stipulates that clubs must have At least 8 “local” footballers are registered in their squads. However, to be considered ‘local’, footballers must have progressed through their club’s youth system or been affiliated with the FA for at least three years before turning 21.

However, clubs can have an unlimited number of players born on or after January 1, 2002. This is because the competition rules state that under-21s do not count towards the squad cap.

In this way, teams usually leave the under-21s out of the first team and register them as youth players in order to have more vacancies. For this reason, Alejandro Garnacho, who is 19 years old, He is not registered with the Red Devils first team.

United applied the same measure to 20-year-old Dane Rasmus Hojlund, who arrived from Atalanta this season.
