Manchester United fans have something to rejoice about as Mason Greenwood has signed a new contract which keeps him at the club until the summer of 2025 with the option to extend it by another year.
The teenager joined the Red Devils’ academy in 2007 and spent several years there before breaking into the first team in 2018.
Greenwood made 49 appearances across all competitions for the senior side last season, netting 17 goals. His performances saw him receive a nomination for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
It also helped Greenwood receive his first England call-up and he made his debut in a Nations League fixture against Iceland.
Upon signing the new contract, the 19-year-old told ManUtd.com: “When you join the club at seven years old, you just dream of playing for the first-team one day. 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.”
Greenwood has established himself as one of the most exciting youngsters in Europe and him penning a new deal is great news for United.
The England international has amassed four goals and five assists in 29 appearances across all competitions this season.
His numbers haven’t been as good as they were last term, but he is only 19 and has plenty of time to improve.
United’s next match is against Real Sociedad, and given that it is a Europa League fixture there is a fair chance of Greenwood starting.
