Mason Greenwood scored for the third time in three games when Manchester United beat the Wolves on Sunday.
Greenwood scored United’s winner in a 1-0 win on an afternoon when the team’s performance wasn’t the best.
The teenager is currently the pick among United strikers and Gary Neville believes the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo can help him move forward even further.
Speaking to Webby and O’Neill’s YouTube channel, Neville said he believed Greenwood now has the perfect example of professionalism

“The way Mason Greenwood is playing right now, he’s fit, he flies, he looks absolutely great,” said Neville. “He’s definitely not left out.
“What Cristiano is going to do is give Mason the professionalism that is required before training, in training and in recovery. With Cristiano, he has an even better chance of becoming a great player.
“Apart from Harry Kane, I don’t see anyone close to Mason Greenwood as an English center forward. Nobody, nobody is around.
“He’s a better center forward than Marcus Rashford, he’s a better finisher than Marcus Rashford. Greenwood is captured in front of the gate, to be honest he could do anything. If he continues to play as he is, he will be unbeatable. “

United must make way for Greenwood
Cristiano Ronaldo will automatically be the first choice upon arrival.
But Edinson Cavani is just coming back, Jadon Sancho didn’t look hard at wolves and Marcus Rashford is injured.
That means Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shouldn’t have too much trouble keeping Greenwood on his side for now.
And if he keeps playing the way he does now, he won’t be going anywhere even if everyone else is fit. His start to the season has been incredibly exciting and learning from Ronaldo will only take him further.
