Having impressed the fans and his manager since his debut this season, Manchester United have tied down Mason Greenwood to a new contract, which is set to expire in the summer of 2023.
The young striker, who is said to be valued at €10 million by TransferMarket, was handed his first full debut in a United shirt back in May, in a Premier League match against now-relegated club Cardiff City, making him the club’s youngest starter in the English Top Flight.
The 18-year-old starlet has registered nine appearances for the Red Devils so far this season, finding the back of the net twice in a 1-0 win against Astana and Rochdale in the Europa League and Carabao Cup respectively.
Speaking on his new contract with the club, Greenwood said: “Having grown up as a Manchester United fan, playing for the first team is a real dream come true.
“I know that, when I play for this club, I represent the whole Academy and I want to repay the faith that my coaches have shown in me with my performances on the pitch.
“I am learning all the time from the manager and his coaching staff and I know that this is the perfect club to help me reach my potential.”
Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added via SkySports: “Mason has progressed through our outstanding Academy and we are delighted with the progress he has made.
“At such a young age, he already has great pace and intelligence and he is such a natural finisher.
“Since he came into the first team, he has really impressed everyone with his drive and attitude, he has all the attributes to become a top player.
“Mason is learning every day in training and, with his work ethic, there is no doubt that he has an excellent future ahead of him.
