Manchester United fans will be happy to hear that Mason Greenwood has decided not to be represented by a super agent.
The Daily Mail claims that despite the advances of a host of agents since ‘long before he shot to prominence’, the 18-year-old will continue to be represented by his father Andrew, who also negotiated Greenwood’s first boot deal with Nike.
Greenwood has used this Premier League campaign to breakthrough and he looks like a real star for the future.
He signed a new contract with the Red Devils in October that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2023 — with the option of a further year. The Mail believes that should his statues at United continue to rise, the club would likely sit down and discuss a fresh deal before the current contract expires.
It all sounds very positive since the Greenwood family are believed to have a strong relationship with the club.

Greenwood will benefit from being able to concentrate on his football rather than having to deal with the distraction of commission-hungry agents trying to unsettle him.
It sounds like Greenwood is going down the same route as Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs.
Following the arrival of Odion Ighalo on loan, Greenwood now has another striker to learn from and he should benefit from the experience.
