Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has found Manchester United’s next Cristiano Ronaldo in Mason Greenwood.
That’s according to former Red Devils forward Dimitar Berbatov, who says the youngster is so promising United don’t need to sign another foward.
Greenwood started in United’s 3-0 win over Brighton on Tuesday, and opened the scoring for the Red Devils in just the 16th minute.
He later turned provider when he set up Bruno Fernandes to score, after he played an inch-perfect chipped pass to his team-mate.
“His left foot is unbelievable along with his vision, I don’t think many signings are needed to take United to that next level.
“They need to be really classy players to make the difference, someone who is going to be better than the current squad of players.”
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was also full of praise for Greenwood following his performance against the Seagulls.
“He’s getting better,” he said. “You can see clearly that he’s maturing and improving, he’s only 18 still so we will see more from him.
“I’ve said it throughout the year that as long as we can get him faced up in and around the box he’ll create chances for us but in this game his hold-up play and his link-up play and general movement was fantastic as well.
“It’s great when he can go inside and outside, both to his left and right.
“He’s a special talent, a special kid that we are going to look after, try to develop into a top top player.
“He’s doing well now but he is still young and has things to learn. He knows that but we have a special talent there we have to nurture.”
