Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood has signed a new long-term deal which will keep him at the club until June 2025, with the option to extend for a further year.

The 19-year-old, who made his first-team debut in March 2019 under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has already made 82 appearances for the club and has netted 21 times.

Greenwood has been with the Reds since he was seven years.

“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,” Greenwood told manutd.com.
