Mason Greenwood pens new deal, extends Man Utd stay until 2025


Manchester United youngster, Mason Greenwood, has penned a new Old Trafford deal until June 2025, with the option to extend for a further year.

Greenwood who joined United at age seven has racked up 21 goals in 82 appearances for the club since making his senior debut as a substitute against Paris Saint-Germain, in the Champions League in March 2019.

The United number 11 who signed his new contract on Tuesday was described as “a fantastic talent and yet another fine example of the type of player that our Academy produces” by the manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian went further to hail his progress and admitted that Greenwood is “one of the best young players in the country.”

Although the youngster has struggled to regain the form that caught attention last season, Solskjaer was protective of the 19-year-old.

“Whilst it is easy for people outside of the club to forget that Mason is just 19, it is our job as coaches to ensure he reaches his phenomenal potential and every step we take is to help him along that path.

“Mason is naturally gifted and has a brilliant attitude; we know how important he is going to be for Manchester United over the coming seasons.”
