Manchester United youngster Mason Greenwood has been touted as the next big thing to come out of the academy.
And from the glimpses we saw during the final game of the Premier League season, the 17-year-old has some serious talent.
Man United lost their final game of the 2018-19 season to Cardiff City but Mason Greenwood was easily one of the brightest players for the Red Devils.
This was only his third Premier League appearance this season but the youngster has been setting the U18 league on fire.
In the past season, Mason Greenwood has played in 13 U18 league games having scored 15 goals and providing 5 assists.
And this has led to many reports that Man United are ready to offer the youngster a new contract at the club.
Now though, it is being claimed that the club will not rush into giving Mason Greenwood a new deal especially since they have already made the same mistake a couple of times in the past.
United offered deals to the likes of Januzaj and Macheda pretty early on in their career but these players eventually turned out to be flops.
So the management have decided that they will only hand Mason Greenwood a new deal once he turns 18.
A source is quoted by The Sun, saying(as reported): “We are going to offload them down the line once they realised the duo were not good enough to play for United.
“We want to send a clear message after some previous mistakes. Contracts were handed out and then progress failed and it was a difficult situation.
“The club want to keep his feet on the ground and focused. We’ll look at it again soon but we have big hopes for this kid.”
Mason Greenwood has proved his worth for the club this season for the youth side and it is more or less certain that the 17-year-old will play a key part for Solskjaer next season.
