Done Deal: Man Utd promising forward agrees contract extension

By | February 18, 2021

Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood has penned a new contract keeping him at Old Trafford until June 2025, with the option for a further 12 months.

The 19-year-old attacker has become a regular in the senior team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer having made his debut two years ago and has gone on to make 82 appearances for United since.

Mason is highly regarded as one of the brightest attacking young talents within the division and has been rewarded for his hard work and progress with a new contract to keep him at the club for the next four seasons at least.

He said: “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.

“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.”

He made his first-team debut off the bench in the UEFA Champions League win against Paris Saint-Germain in March 2019.

Mason’s first senior start in the English top-flight came on the final day of the 2018-19 term at home to Cardiff. Greenwood has featured in 82 matches for the first-team since his debut.

Greenwood has netted 21 goals for the senior team, with 17 of those coming last campaign when he impressed after the restart following the coronavirus-enforced break in the season.
