Manchester United have announced that Mason Greenwood has signed a new contract extension, the teenage forward penning a deal long-term deal that will run until 2025.
Greenwood burst onto the scene last season after coming through the club’s academy system, becoming the first player in more than two decades to score 10+ goals in a Premier League campaign aged 18 or under.
The 19-year-old netted 17 times in all competitions – equalling the record set for a teenager at Manchester United set jointly by Brian Kidd, George Best and Wayne Rooney – and earned his first senior cap for England last year.
Greenwood has been with the club since the age of seven and has now committed his future to the Red Devils until 2025 at least, the club expressed their delight at retaining the services of one of English football’s brightest young talents.
