Manchester United's Mason Greenwood is Europe's U-18 top scorer
Juventus eye reunion with unhappy Barcelona ace Arturo Vidal

In the midst of a storm, there are still some positives.

One of them is the young striker.

Manchester United have had a difficult season so far, but teenage striker Mason Greenwood has been one of the bright sparks for the club. The 18-year-old is regarded as one of the best talents in the country and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer called him the most “natural finisher” at United.

Now Greenwood has overtaken Barcelona youngster Ansu Fati and Real Madrid’s Rodrygo as the leading U-18 goalscorer in Europe’s top leagues. Greenwood was on the scoresheet in United’s 4-1 win over Newcastle United, which took his tally to three Premier League goals, overtaking the likes of Fati and Rodrygo.

The list includes the top leagues in England, Spain, Germany, Italy, France and Portugal. Both the Barcelona and Real Madrid youngsters have two goals each in the league this season and while Fati has an assist to his name as well, the Brazilian star has none.

Overall, Greenwood has scored eight goals for Manchester United this season across all competitions in 22 appearances. The 18-year-old looks set to retain his spot in the United first team for the foreseeable future and with the Premier League giants not planning to sign a forward in January, the youngster will get many more opportunities this season.
