Alejandro Garnacho, an exciting winger, made his move from Atletico Madrid in 2020 to join Manchester United. With an enviable goal-scoring record in his homeland, he quickly rose through the ranks, predominantly operating on the left-hand side of the attack.

His journey with the Academy started with a memorable debut as a substitute in the mini-Manchester derby in October 2020, where he later netted his first goal against Everton.

The 2021/22 season showcased Garnacho's remarkable goal-scoring prowess, particularly during the Under-18s' FA Youth Cup run. In a memorable quarter-final clash against Leicester City at Old Trafford, the Madrid-born winger scored twice, further adding to his impressive performances against Everton and Scunthorpe United at the Theatre of Dreams. Additionally, he played a pivotal role in helping the Under-19s reach the UEFA Youth League last-16.

Not only has Alejandro represented Spain at various youth levels, but he is also eligible to play for Argentina, his mother's birth country. This dual eligibility led to him receiving a call-up to Argentina's preliminary squad for their FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Venezuela and Ecuador in March 2022.

On 28 April 2022, Garnacho achieved a significant milestone by making his senior debut for Manchester United. He came on as an injury-time substitute in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea in the Premier League.

The subsequent season on 8 September 2022 marked Garnacho's European debut for Manchester United during the Europa League opener against Real Sociedad at Old Trafford. In the return fixture, he scored his first senior goal against the same opposition, leaving a lasting impact in Erik ten Hag's first season in charge.

His exceptional performances didn't go unnoticed, and he was rewarded with a new long-term contract towards the end of the season. Following this, he earned his first appearance for Argentina in international friendlies, coming on as a substitute in La Albiceleste's 2-0 victory over Australia on Thursday, 15 June.
