Mason Greenwood commits to United with four-year contract

Mason Greenwood has committed his future to Manchester United after signing a new four-year contract at the club.

The 19-year old, who has spectacularly already become a key figure in the United team and scored over 20 goals despite his age, signed his last contract late in 2019 but his breakthrough season last year has seen him earn an extension.

2020 saw the teenager finish the year as United’s fourth highest goalscorer after Bruno Fernandes, Anthony Martial & Marcus Rashford.

The club confirmed on Tuesday that Greenwood had signed a four-year contract and it is believed that there is an option to extend it for a further year.

“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,” he said.

“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.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjær was full of praise for the youngster he handed his debut to during his stint as caretaker manager.

“Mason is a fantastic talent and yet another fine example of the type of player that our Academy produces,” the boss commented.

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