A fresh prospect is hard to say no to, and even at a club that is facing a crisis like Manchester United seems to be at the moment, a hopeful prospect is available nevertheless.
The Red Devils have enjoyed many a talented players grace their pitch at Old Trafford. In the current squad too, it is clear that lack of talent isn’t a problem, but a concise and perfect use of it may be.
Jose Mourinho has numerous youngsters at his disposal – eager lads that are waiting to attain the adequate time and opportunity to make it big. Now, the squad could welcome yet another promising starlet.
Manchester United confirmed on their website that U18s striker Mason Greenwood has signed his first professional contract with the club. The English international turned 17 earlier this week, and was their top scorer in the 2017/18 season with 17 goals to his name.
This term has already seen him net 9 times for the side, a haul that seems destined to go well over the double figures. He also made a promising tour with the senior team to the United States this summer, where he caught Mourinho’s eye as well.
Apart from being a prolific assister, aiding his overall skill-set, the teenager is even an adept two-footed player, possessing the sort of demeanor that others of his age often lack.
Perhaps the most promising of the youth prospects at United, it is clear that the club does not wish to lose out on his services, as they value him highly.
Having trained alongside many of the first-team players as well, it seems that Mourinho is eager to integrate him into the senior ranks in the seasons to come.
Of course, for that to occur, the Portuguese gaffer must still hold the United position in the future, with recent results painting an unflattering picture.
