Mason Greenwood, remember the name. This young man is amongst our most talented youth academy products at Manchester United right now.
The good news for us? He’s just committed his future to the Red Devils, by signing his first professional contract. The club broke the news via their Twitter page last night, giving us fans a welcome boost amid some awful football that is currently on display.
You have to say that Nicky Butt is doing a fantastic job with his side at youth level. The likes of Greenwood, Tahith Chong and Angel Gomes are massively flourishing. The youngsters are looking to make their impact and prove that they can be stars of the now rather than the future.

Greenwood is just 17. The footballing world is his oyster. He’s quick, good with both feet, has an excellent shot on him while also possessing an accurate eye for a pass.
The fact that he can now concentrate on his football, rather than worrying about where his future lies, is only a good thing for Greenwood’s development. Who knows, if he continues to develop and grow, this lad could well be used at some point during this season. If not, look to see him involved during United’s 2019 pre-season tour.
