‘When I joined this incredible club, I dreamt of achieving my debut, playing at Old Trafford, scoring my first goal and winning trophies with this badge on my chest,’ said the teenager. 

‘I feel very proud and emotional to have experienced these moments already, together with my family who have supported me every step of the way

‘We are all humbled to have this chance to continue our journey at Manchester United and I have already begun to work on achieving the next set of targets and ambitions. 

‘The manager and his coaching staff have helped me to improve in every way, and with their support, I am developing each day to help the team to be successful. 

‘I am relishing the future and can’t wait to create more special memories with this group, in front of our amazing supporters.’

Garnacho has missed the last six weeks with an ankle injury.

But Ten Hag says the winger is nearing a return after he was able to participate in training on Friday afternoon.

‘Yes [he is closer to being back],’ said Ten Hag.

‘He will return tomorrow [Friday] in the team training part and then we have to see when he can return totally in the team training and then back into games.”
