Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood is to be rewarded for his fine recent form with a new contract – even though he only signed his current four-year deal at the club last summer.
Since the Premier League restart, Greenwood has scored four League goals, and has formed part of a dynamic attacking front three with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
The new deal will see his weekly wage rise from £25,000 to £40,000 a week, and will also include substantial bonuses, with an annual pay increase factored into the agreement as well.
The length of the new deal has yet to be confirmed but given that his existing contract runs until 2023 with the option of a further year, it is likely to extend his stay at Old Trafford by several more years at least.
Greenwood has scored sixteen goals in all competitions and needs one more from United’s two remaining league games to equal Wayne Rooney’s record of ten by a Manchester United player under-18 in a season.
