Man Utd boost as Alejandro Garnacho is NOT in Argentina squad for U20 World Cup after club ‘did not give him up’ | The Sun
ALEJANDRO GARNACHO has not been selected to play in the U20 World Cup for Argentina.

Garnacho has been out with an ankle injury for the Red Devils since early March.

And it appears that this would be why the club have not allowed him to take part in the youth international competition.
