youngster Alvaro Fernandez admits he could be tempted by a return to later in his career.

The 20-year-old defender left in 2020 to sign for United, joining alongside Marc Jurado and who arrived the same summer from Barcelona and Atletico Madrid respectively.

With Garnacho now part of the first-team squad, Fernandez hopes to make similar progress

where he hopes to convince Erik ten Hag he can compete for first-team opportunities next season.

The Spaniard hopes to achieve success with United next season but admits in the long-term, a return to his homeland could prove tempting.

‘In the end, I’ve been away for four years,’ Fernandez told .

‘I came to a different country, totally different culture to Spain and you meet a lot of new people. It is very good, but there is always that sparkle to return.

‘I’m great in England, it’s true, but that door is always open to return to Spain in the future.’

Fernandez scooped Preston’s Young Player of the Year award last season and says the club have already reached out to sign him on loan again with a number of other Championship clubs also interested.

But the youngster says his preference is to remain at Old Trafford, or, if a loan is decided, to join a team in a ‘top league’.

‘Hopefully I can stay in the United first team,’ he said.

‘If it doesn’t happen and I have to go out on loan, then keep working hard and keep growing. I am 20 years old and what I want is to play. But if it can be at United, much better.

‘I have been called [by] great Championship teams. And Preston wanted to continue counting on me. But in case of going out on loan, I would say that the time has come to go to a top league. Not to say directly the Premier League or La Liga.’
