Manchester United wonderkid is wanted by more than 20 clubs, according to a report on The Express.

New United boss Erik ten Hag is said to be a huge fan of the 18-year-old but is reportedly considering sending him out on loan to give him valuable first-team experience.

The clubs interested in signing Garnacho are from England, Spain, Germany, Italy and Scotland. 

Ten Hag is yet to decide whether he can offer Garnacho the game time needed to accelerate his development this season – and the clubs vying for his signature are banking on the Red Devils choosing to send him somewhere else to toughen him up.

Garnacho’s agent Eugenio Ascari spoke to club chiefs last week, with any potential loan deal needing to be completed before the summer transfer window slams shut on the first day of September.

But some senior figures at Old Trafford believe the club should keep Garnacho for the time being and instead make a call about a temporary transfer away during the January window.
