Mason Greenwood is set to sign a new contract with Manchester United.

The 17-year-old has broken into the Red Devils’ first-team already, and is expected to be heavily involved due to the scarce attacking options at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s disposal.

The youth academy graduate signed his first professional contract only last October, as United looked to hold onto him amid interest from several Bundesliga clubs.

Now, nearly 11 months after his first senior deal, the teenager appears set to be rewarded with a new, improved contract.

According to The Athletic, Greenwood is currently in talks with Manchester United over a new deal that will see him get a significant pay-rise, worth £25,000-a-week.

As per the new terms, his basic salary will also be added with “significant” appearance fee bonuses, which will be based on the number of games played.

Greenwood has made substitute appearances in all four Premier League games so far this season, having played for a combined total of 47 minutes.

The Englishman has also been described as the most natural finisher in the current squad by Solskjaer, and this campaign could very well end up being his breakthrough season at the Theatre of Dreams.
