MANCHESTER UNITED academy star Alejandro Garnacho has shown off an incredible new leg tattoo inspired by his favorite childhood cartoon.
The 18-year-old sits on the fringes of the Red Devils’ first-team after impressing in the youth ranks.
Garnacho has five senior games to his credit and has also trained with the Argentina squad alongside Lionel Messi.
And ahead of a potentially glittering career, Garnacho has cool new ink on his leg that may inspire his fans to do the same.
Garnacho has covered his lower leg with a tattoo of his favorite childhood football cartoon, Captain Tsubasa.
The plot focuses on Tsubasa’s relationship with his friends, rivalries with his opponents, training, and the outcome of each soccer game.
The football themed tattoo complements the tattoos covering his arms which feature Prison Break characters, roses, a tiger and a woman’s face.
Garnacho has made three appearances for United this season, most recently in the 2-0 Europa League win over Sheriff.
He has one appearance in the Premier League this season.
However, he spent most of his time on the bench and was not used in four games.

Garnacho has worked with arguably the two best footballers of all time in Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, both of whom are his ‘idols’ and he could learn a lot from them which would benefit United.
The youngster was seen taking advice from United team-mate Ronaldo, 37, who handed him his hat-trick match point from last season’s game against Norwich.
Garnacho is so impressive that some former United players are asking for more minutes for him.
Former United defender Paul Parker is keen to see more of the “tenacious” winger.
Parker told BeMyBet: “I think you really have to look at what you have in the squad, there’s a younger player, Alejandro Garnacho.
“Everyone kind of talked about him in preseason.
“Garnacho [is] tenacious… a lot of Argentines play with a fire in their stomach and are a bit fiery and he has a competitive advantage.
