Manchester United starlet Alejandro Garnarcho has had quite the season.
The Argentine forward was integrated into the first team by gaffer Erik Ten Hag midway through this campaign, and it didn’t take long for him to cast a strong impression.
The 18-year-old has turned into United’s saviour off the bench on numerous occasions, he was also handed starts in multiple games for the Red Devils.
His campaign did take a turn for the worse in the past months, as he suffered an unfortunate injury which coincided with the rejection of his plea to be released for the U-20 World Cup.
Despite the recent roller-coaster, matters have begun looking up once again in the best way possible.
A couple of days ago, the forward was rewarded for his performances and handed a 5-year contract extension, one which will keep him at the club until 2028.
To celebrate the occasion, Garnacho, along with family and relatives, took to Victors restaurant in Hale, although the night wasn’t just about celebrating the extension.
As revealed through an Instagram post by the player, Alejandro is all set to become a father with his pregnant partner Eva Garica.
The night out at Victors actually served as a gender-reveal party for their baby on the way, with the contract extension effectively being the cherry on the cake.
Clips and images from the party have since gone viral with congratulatory messages coming from all directions.
For the uninitiated, Garnacho went public with Eva Garcia back in 2021, the two had reportedly been dating since his spell at Atletico Madrid.
The couple have come a long way, and now, they’re taking the ultimate step into parenthood together.
As revealed through his post, the Argentine will welcome a baby boy with Garica, and the couple have already decided on his name.
Garnacho announced the name as part of his caption, ’Planning your arrival and knowing you’re going to be here to complete our lives fills us with love and excitement. We can’t explain how we feel to be able to fulfil our biggest dream together. We’re counting down the days to meet you, Dad and Mom already love you so much Enzo.’
Aside from messages of support and excitement, the couple also received some citing doubt and concerns.
A majority of them appeared to be centred around the forward’s age, as Garnacho is still a teenager and barely an adult.
Fans online also compared and contrasted his situation with that of his teammates, which really makes it come off as baffling.
