MANCHESTER UNITED are close to agreeing a new contract with Alejandro Garnacho, according to reports.
The youngster has broken into the first-team this season and grabbed an assist in the win against Manchester City.
Reports emerged last month that United were planning to tie down Garnacho to a long-term deal.
And now Spanish publication AS claim the Red Devils are on the verge of announcing the new contract.
Garnacho, 18, has reportedly put pen to paper on a five-and-a-half-year deal.
All that is left is an agreement on the youngster’s image rights.
It is believed the winger has agreed a wage of £ 30,000 a week – up from £7,000 a week.
That is good news for United as Garnacho reportedly snubbed their first offer.
That sparked interest from Juventus and Real Madrid.
Atletico Madrid were also keen on snapping up Garnacho but his future appears to lie at Old Trafford.

Garnacho has scored two goals and four assists in 20 appearances for United this season and has impressed manager Erik ten Hag.
Ten Hag said of the wonderkid: “He has a skill that I don’t see many players in the Premier League having – he beats players one-on-one.
“But he’s learnt in the last months about how to play in a team, how to live, how to do the right things in the week, how to have the right attitude on the training ground and you see how he’s acting as a team player and with his individual skills that can make the difference.”
