Mason Greenwood’s new salary and where Man Utd teen ranks for wages among squad
Mason Greenwood is still a fair way off being Manchester United’s top earner despite signing a new contract with the Red Devils.
The 19-year-old penned a new deal that keeps him tied down at Old Trafford until 2025, with the option of an extra year.
Greenwood has impressed at United having burst onto the scene as a youngster and has already made 82 appearances for the club.
He’s also earned England call-ups though Greenwood’s new contract still sees him behind United’s top wage earners.
He was believed to be earning £35,000 per week on his previous deal and is now reportedly earning more than double that.
Though his £75,000 per week earnings are still a long way behind team-mates such as David de Gea, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial.
De Gea is believed to be taking home a huge £375,000 per week while Pogba earns £290,000 every seven days.
Martial pockets £250,000 every week while fellow striker Edinson Cavani is reportedly earning £210,000.
Though Greenwood is just pleased to put pen to paper, saying: “When you join the club at seven years old, you just dream of playing for the first-team one day.
“I’ve worked so hard to reach this level and the last two years have been amazing. There is so much that I want to achieve in the game and I know that this is the perfect environment to play my football.
“With the support from the manager, his coaching staff and so many great players to learn from; I know that I am developing every single day.
