Peterborough United Director of Football Barry Fry has told Football FanCast that Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood will become the best forward in the world in two to three years.
The 19-year-old has been in good form in recent weeks, scoring four goals in his last four Premier League outings.
That run of form included a brace against Burnley, and Fry has been blown away by the performances of the teenager.
Greenwood is still only 19 and he has scored a total of 26 goals in 98 outings for United since his first-team breakthrough.
Fry believes he is already United’s best player, and says his ability to score goals with either foot could set him apart as the finest striker in world football in the next few years.
Already an England international, Greenwood has played in a number of positions for United, and has primarily been used as a right winger this season, though he has also played through the middle under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Speaking exclusively to FFC, he said: “I think the best player Manchester United have got, and he will be the best centre-forward in the future, is Greenwood.
“I think he’s a special talent, he’s still young, but in two or three years I think he’ll be the best centre-forward around.
“I think his finishing with either foot is excellent.”
