Greenwood: pens new United deal

Up and coming teenager Mason Greenwood has signed a new contract with Manchester United, signalling the club's intent to make the England youth international an important member of the first team in the near future. Greenwood has put pen to paper on a contract with United until 2023.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has yet to expose Greenwood to too much playing time, but will be delighted to have brought through the player as a bit-part performer so far this season. 

“Mason has progressed through our outstanding academy and we are delighted with the progress he has made,” Solskjaer said.

“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."

“Having grown up as a Manchester United fan, playing for the first team is a real dream come true,” Greenwood said of his new deal. 

“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.”
