He joined the Manchester United Academy in October 2020 from Atletico Madrid, commanding a transfer fee of £420,000 fee. He signed his first professional contract with the club in July 2021.

He made his first team debut in April 2022, at the age of 17, in a Premier League game against Chelsea.

Since breaking into the first team, Garnacho has had a big impact and has shown the ability that made him a name for himself in the FA Youth Cup-winning side.

On Thursday, Nov. 10 2022, Garnacho came off the bench to register two assists in the 4-2 win the Carabao Cup third-round tie against Aston Villa.

He has also scored in the 1-0 Europa League victory against Real Sociedad and made his maiden Premier League start against Villa last weekend.
