Manchester United’s Alejandro Garnacho has enjoyed a breakthrough season at Old Trafford and has become a regular part of Erik Ten Hag’s plans. The manager’s preference for the youngster over team veterans is understandable, especially when one conducts the key goals he scored against Real Sociedad and Fulham.

His strong displays almost earned him a spot in Lionel Scaloni’s Argentina squad for the World Cup. However, Rodra reports that there is something more valuable than the youngster has earned with his consistent performances.

According to the Spanish journalist, Real Madrid are now keeping an eye on Garnacho’s situation and availability. The player is attracted to the prospect of donning the white colours, but the case is not so straightforward.

Manchester United wish to extend the Argentine’s contract until 2027, a two-season extension over the existing contract until 2025. Real Madrid may offer a bigger stage but cannot assure the same number of minutes as the Red Devils, and the player will have to decide which one he values more.

In five games for Ten Hag’s side so far this season, the youngster has scored twice. This statistic becomes more relevant when one considers that he has only played 162 minutes.

The forward is no stranger to La Liga, having done his initial years of training in Getafe. He then moved to Atletico Madrid’s youth setup for five years before making the big move to England.

If Garnacho ends up joining the Spanish capital, Real Madrid would boast of an unstoppable forward line. Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo Goes are already world-class young talents while Endrick seems set to join when he turns 18. Clearly, the up-and-coming generation at the Bernabeu could not be more frightening.

Real Madrid are set to welcome two new stars this summer, Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, but the Merengues are keen on further bolstering their squad.

Owing to the embarrassment of riches Real Madrid possess in midfield, replacing Toni Kroos with a new signing in midfield is not seen as an immediate priority.

Nonetheless, interesting opportunities will invariably be evaluated closely and it appears the name of Adrien Rabiot has entered the club’s crosshairs.

Real Madrid not the only ones interested

But, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Real Madrid face stiff competition from Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabian teams in their pursuit of midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The French midfielder is set to become a free agent if he chooses not to renew his contract with Juventus, a decision that seems increasingly likely.

Known for his technical prowess and versatility, Rabiot excels at playing multiple roles in midfield and notably thriving as a goal threat with late runs inside the opposition box that tend to catch opponents off guard.

While Real Madrid have no shortage of quality in midfield, Dani Ceballos’ exit could pave the way for the 29-year-old to secure a signing for Los Blancos.

However, Real Madrid would have to outmanoeuvre both the financial prowess of Saudi Arabian teams and the competitive allure of Premier League clubs to secure Rabiot’s signature.

On top of that, Juventus are also not giving up on their efforts to try and renew the contract of the French international.

In any case, Rabiot is unlikely to be a priority target for the club but they will be sure to keep a close eye on how his situation develops.
