MASON GREENWOOD’S fine season will earn him a bumper new Old Trafford deal — just nine months after he signed his last.
Manchester United’s striker, 18, was only handed a new £25,000-a-week five- year contract in October.
Man Utd will hand Mason Greenwood a lucrative new contract
But he has been such a big success that United are set to rip that up and reward him with near double-your-money terms.
His fresh deal will also include incremental rises, plus success-related clauses, as well as a slight extension.

Greenwood has been a first-team regular since the turn of the year, hitting 16 goals this season, to put him within touching distance of an Old Trafford record.
Only George Best, Brian Kidd and Wayne Rooney — who all got 17 — have got more in a season as a teenager.
A year ago he was picking up £800 a week — but his new deal will see that rocket to around £40,000.
He has been in red-hot form since the restart and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees no reason why that cannot continue for the rest of the campaign.
Ole said: “Mason has coped really well with the demands on him. We’ve managed him as well as we could and he’s come back from lockdown flying.
“His sharpness is there, he’s gained a few kilos and he’s gained a lot of experience and confidence in his own abilities. He’s been excellent.
“There are only two games left in the league, hopefully two in the FA Cup and three or four in the Europa League, but he’ll be fine — there is no chance of a burnout.”
United have been wary of handing big-money terms to youngsters, after the likes of Federico Macheda and Adnan Januzaj burst on to the scene but then lost their way.
Yet they have no such concerns over Greenwood, who is also being tipped to make England’s squad for next year’s Euros.
