Manchester United have on Friday announced that Mason Greenwood has signed a new contract, which will keep him at the club until June 2023, with the option to extend for a further year.
Greenwood, 18, is a product of the club’s famed Academy and has been at Manchester United since the age of seven.
The England Under-21 international became Manchester United’s youngest starter in the Premier League era when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer handed him his full debut against Cardiff City in May.
Mason 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.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said:
“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.”
Greenwood is one of 12 Academy graduates who have featured in a first-team matchday squad this season.
