Manchester United are said to have offered young forward a new deal that will keep him at the club for the nearest futures. Greenwood is regarded as one of the top prospects from the youth teams and the club is trying to tie him to a long term deal.

Greenwood is also tricky and possesses quality with his ability on the ball no doubt.  The 17-year-old has been effective in the Europa League and is seen as the future of the club.  United are thought to be looking at the player as a temporary solution to their injury crises.

Ahead of the visit of Liverpool Greenwood might be given a run out on the game depending on the situation. United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes in the young forward and his abilities.

Manchester United fans spoke about the development on Twitter with some hoping that Greenwood would be able to a similar effect to Marcus Rashfsord with a goal against Liverpool. Manchester United are currently in a dire situation with the club finding it difficult to score and create chances.

The injury to Anthony Martial and the constant injuries to Paul Pogba means that United have been blunt in attack. Solskjaer could look to use Greenwood more as the season progresses. United fans will be hoping that the forward will be the next Rooney rather than Federico Macheda.

The Red Devils have been linked to a number of players with Atlanta forward Duvan Zapata among the players that have been earmarked by the club. There are also rumours that Mario Mandzukic could be on his way to the club in January. Emre Can is also said to be in talks with Manchester United.

Manchester United have the money to burn and it would be interesting to see how the season goes.
