Manchester United youngster Alejandro Garnacho has been turning a lot of heads with his performances this season, with Real Madrid emerging as one of the interested parties in the youngster.

The 18-year-old prospect spent the early part of his youth career at Atletico Madrid before moving to Manchester United in 2020, where he has made rapid progress.

In ten senior appearances, the young winger has already bagged two goals and assists apiece, making an impression on several clubs, including Real Madrid.

Indeed, numerous Spanish outlets have been reporting Los Blancos’ interest in Garnacho, given that his contract with Manchester United stands to expire in 18 months’ time, although the club retain the option to extend it by another year.

Following the Red Devils’ recent mid-season friendly against Real Betis earlier this week, the 18-year-old was quizzed about the interest from Real Madrid by Spanish media.

However, his Manchester United teammate, David de Gea, intervened and responded to the media himself, saying (h/t Metro): “We won’t let him leave.”

Garnacho has reportedly been offered a new contract worth around £50,000 per week by Manchester United, with the Argentine teenager said to be keen on putting pen to paper on that proposal.

So, Real Madrid’s chances of signing Garnacho next summer appear to be bleak at this moment, although things can change in the transfer market in the blink of an eye.

While they may have their sights on the Manchester United starlet, the Merengues are close to completing the capture of another wonderkid, with Brazilian teenager Endrick set to sign from Palmeiras. However, the teen forward will only be eligible to arrive at the club in 2024, once he turns 18.

Speaking to DAZN (h/t Mundo Deportivo), Atletico Madrid forward Alvaro Morata admitted that Real Madrid midfield superstar Jude Bellingham is performing at a great level.

Real Madrid take on Atletico in La Liga on Sunday in the Madrid derby at the Civitas Metropolitano and without a doubt, Bellingham will pose a huge threat for the Rojiblancos.

Alvaro Morata hopes Bellingham as a quiet outing

Ahead of the blockbuster encounter on Sunday, Morata, who is Atletico’s main striker, admitted that Bellingham has great quality.

“I saw him last year in a few games, the truth is that he caught my attention. I saw him in his team and in his national team, and talking to people who had played with him, teammates he has, you could already see that he was a great player,” he said.

However, the former Real Madrid striker added that he hoped that the England international has an off day during the derby.

“The truth is that he is at a great level, we can only hope that he doesn’t do well and that we also have very good players to counteract that. We hope he doesn’t have a good day on Sunday,” Morata stated.

Bellingham has been the in-form player for Real Madrid this season with six goals and an assist in six matches across all competitions.

So, naturally, there were concerns when he did not complete the training sessions on Friday due to stomach issues.

But, the 20-year-old returned to training today and Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that he will play against Atleti tomorrow, with the Englishman named in the squad list as well.
