Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that he wants to keep Mason Greenwood at the Old Trafford. With the departure of Romelu Lukaku to Inter and no arrival of a replacement, the Red Devils are a little short of centre-forwards.
As a result, it was only a matter of time before the Norwegian had to look towards the academy stars and against Astana in the Europa League. Greenwood got the nod and took the opportunity with both hands as he scored the only goal of the game to give the Red Devils a win.
Following the match, the Norwegian revealed that the club are in talks with Greenwood regarding a new contract as he is someone who they want to keep at the club for a long time to come.
“We’re always in talks with the boys,” Solskjaer said, as per Goal. “Mason is one we will want to keep with us.”
Solskjaer then went on to add that the youngster is learning from training session as he is working with better and more experienced players, which is why the Norwegian thinks that he will only get better as he gets more playing time.
“He’s learning every single day in training, training with better players and the more match time he gets the better tempo and today was a good introduction for him.”
