Manchester United has assembled a brilliant team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Their summer business has been near perfect and they are looking to compete in all the competitions. However, it is quite refreshing to see that academy graduate Mason Greenwood is also starting among the big names. The 20 yeard old has been a fan favorite since the introduction to the first team and he is delivering solid returns from the very start of the season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is very fond of him. And it seems every time he puts his faith in him he repays it back. Alongside his football, Mason Greenwood’s net worth is also growing rapidly. Let’s take a look at his journey so far.
Mason Greenwood: Early LIfe
Born on 1st October 2001, in West Yorkshire, Greenwood was only six when joined Manchester United. After progressing through the academy ranks, he joined up with the Under-18 squad for the 2017–18 season. He finished the 2017-18 season as the highest scorer of the U18 Premier League North with 17 goals in 21 games. His goal-scoring ability was natural and that got him his first-team experience the next season. He was with the first team on the pre-season tour in the USA. Mason Greenwood’s first-team debut came in an iconic win over Paris Saint Germain. However, the next season was his breakthrough season. Mason Greenwood netted 10 goals in 31 appearances. His shooting abilities were highly praised by the experts. His growth was quite brilliant. And he is still in his youth. He started the season with plenty of goals and there is only upwards for the youngster.
The youngster is very much down to earth but that doesn’t seem to affect his growing net worth. In 2019 he signed a 5 year / £19,500,000 contract with Manchester United, including an annual average salary of £3,900,000. Various brand endorsements at this young age make him a future asset for the red devils. His net worth is an estimated £1.1 Million. Since his introduction, he has always increased his numbers and his overall game. This quality will make him an even bigger star in the coming future. His natural gameplay has always been compared with former United legend Robin Van Persie. And the fans love this comparison. He’s already a fan favorite and now he is playing with even bigger pressure.
From the academy to the first team, his journey has been quite beautiful. However, he is yet to get his due share of success with the England national team. And that will increase his net worth even more.
