Manchester United have won the race to sign highly rated Atletico Madrid starlet Alejandro Garnacho ahead of other major European teams.
Spanish newspaper Marca said that the Red Devils won the race to sign the young striker ahead of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
The 16-year-old will sign a five-year contract at Manchester United this summer.
He has been playing for Atletico Madrid’s U19 team.

Real Madrid have a difficult relationship with city rivals Atletico Madrid and that played a big role in Manchester United winning the race to sign the young attacker.
Manchester United fans have been highly critical of their team’s transfer activity this summer and the imminent arrival of Alejandro Garnacho won’t do much to change that as the player is one for the future.
The Red Devils have made just one signing this summer and that was the Donny Van De Beek deal.
Manchester United paid £40m to secure his signing from Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam and the club has given him the no. 34 shirt chosen by the player in honour of his friend Abdelhak Nouri.
Nouri has been sick since the summer of 2017 when he slumped during a friendly game in the colours of Ajax Amsterdam.
