Mason Greenwood signs new Man Utd contract

Mason Greenwood has signed a new contract with Manchester United.

The 19-year-old’s new deal will run until 2025, while United have the option to extend it for a further year.

Greenwood was handed his debut by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer nearly two years ago in the Champions League and has gone on to score 21 goals in 82 first-team appearances for United.

Since making his breakthrough at United, Greenwood has also won his first senior England cap.

‘When you join the club at seven years old, you just dream of playing for the first-team one day,’ Greenwood told United’s official website.

‘I’ve worked so hard to reach this level and the last two years have been amazing. There is so much that I want to achieve in the game and I know that this is the perfect environment to play my football.

‘With the support from the manager, his coaching staff and so many great players to learn from; I know that I am developing every single day.

‘There is a lot more to come from myself and this team and I am so committed to working hard week in, week out to help the group achieve success.

‘I want to repay the club for the support that everyone has given me over the years and show everyone just what I am capable of.’

Meanwhile, Greenwood’s progress has been praised by Solskjaer, with the United manager claiming that the forward has developed into one of the best young players in the country.

‘Mason is a fantastic talent and yet another fine example of the type of player that our academy produces,’ said Solskjaer.

‘He has made great progress this season, showing real maturity and adaptability to his game, which has seen him develop into one of the best young players in the country.

‘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.’
