Real Madrid are believed to be monitoring a young Manchester United star whose stock has risen in recent months, and whose contract talks with the Premier League giants have reportedly stalled.

The Red Devils have been in a rich vein of form since the 2022 FIFA World Cup ended, with seven wins in their past seven matches.

While Marcus Rashford has been stealing the headlines with his match-winning strikes, other United forwards have also been chipping in with goal contributions, including Antony and Alejandro Garnacho.

The latter's contract at United expires in June 2024, although there is an option for an extra year in it.

Despite the Argentine teenager still having more than a year left on his current deal, the player has already been in talks with the Manchester club about a contract extension. 

However, according to The Independent, Garnacho's representatives have turned down a new contract worth £20 000 (R419 000) a week from the EPL giants, which has led to speculation about his future at the club.

The 18-year-old is believed to be currently earning a weekly salary of about £7 000 (R147 000), but his representatives are said to believe that his increasing role in the first team justifies a higher wage than the one he has been offered.

Real Madrid and Juventus are keeping a close eye on the winger's contract situation as a result, per Goal.

It is claimed that United want to take a measured approach in their negotiations with the Argentine's camp, and only begin rewarding him if his performances continue at the same level.
