Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed the club want to keep young striker Mason Greenwood, with talks for a new contract in the offing.

Greenwood was handed his first-ever United start when he made Solskjaer’s XI for their Europa League group stage opener against Astana at Old Trafford.

The 17-year-old attacker made good on his manager’s faith, scoring in the 73rd minute for the only goal of the contest to give United the victory.

Greenwood became the first player for United born in the 2000s to score, and Solskjaer is hoping that goal is the first of many for the teenager in a Red Devils shirt.

And the manager affirmed the club are in talks to make certain Greenwood sticks around at Old Trafford for years to come.

“We’re always in talks with the boys,” Solskjaer said after the victory. “Mason is one we will want to keep with us.

“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.”
