Mason Greenwood is an English striker who currently plays for Premier League side Manchester United, having joined the club’s youth academy at the age of six and progressed through the team’s junior ranks and first breaking into the club’s first team squad in 2018.

The 18-year-old England under-21 international has been a part of the Manchester United academy structure since joining in 2007 and made a name for himself as one of the club’s brightest prospects, as well as impressing for England’s youth sides during his development years.

Having first broke into the pre-season squad and trained with the first team in 2018, Greenwood made his first senior competitive appearance for Manchester United in March 2019 as a late substitute in the UEFA Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain. At the age of 17 years and 156 days, he became the second youngest player to represent the club in a European competition, behind Norman Whiteside.

The 18-year-old Bradford-born forward has since gone on to make 40 appearances in all competitions for the club, scoring 12 goals, as he successfully established himself as a regular first team talent for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United side.
