Most 17-year-olds are either sat around revising for their exams or spend most of their time playing video games.

But not Alejandro Garnacho. He is far too busy training with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi and making his Manchester United debut.

There aren’t many that can say they’re teammates with Ronaldo and Messi!

Garnacho made his first appearance for the Red Devils as a late substitute in their 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Thursday.

It comes just weeks after he was handed his first Argentina call-up after some excellent performances for United’s youth teams.

The youngster has been instrumental in United’s run to the FA Youth Cup final this season, scoring four goals in four games.

And he has now been given his chance in the first team, which looks likely to continue when new boss Erik ten Hag joins the club in the summer.

But don’t ask him his thoughts on the Messi vs Ronaldo debate – because he has one foot in both camps!

After training with his now international teammate, Garnacho shared an image with the Argentine superstar, calling him his his ‘idol’.


But then just a few weeks later, Ronaldo and Garnacho shared a special moment after the United man’s hat-trick against Norwich, as the 37-year-old handed the youngster his match ball.

Garnacho took to Instagram again, posting: “Greatest of all times. Dream big guys.”

Sergio Aguero cheekily responded to the post, commenting: “Because you still didn’t play with the best pa @leomessi.”

His 2022 got even better when he replaced Anthony Elanga at Old Trafford to make his debut for United, having signed from Atletico Madrid two years ago.

Not many people have had a better few weeks than this guy!
