Mason Greenwood made a handful of senior appearances for Manchester United last term, but the 2019-20 campaign has undoubtedly been the youngster’s breakthrough season.
The 18-year-old is now a household name thanks to his impressive displays with the Red Devils in recent weeks and months.
Greenwood has scored 16 goals this season and has all the tools required to become a global star.
Fast, powerful and two-footed, it’s scary to think how good the teenage forward will be in a few years’ time.
Greenwood’s eye-catching performances have been reflected with an increase in his market value.
In fact, Greenwood is the Premier League player whose market value has increased most since January 1, 2020.
First of all, let’s take a look and see which other players make the top 20 (all market values are provided courtesy of Transfermarkt.com)…
20. Aaron Ramsdale | Bournemouth
Current market value: £11.25m (Previous value: £9m)
The 22-year-old goalkeeper has played in all but one of Bournemouth’s Premier League fixtures this season.
If the Cherries are relegated, expect another top-flight club to make a move for the England Under-21 international.
19. Yan Couto | Manchester City
Current market value: £3.24m (Previous value: £900k)
Premier League fans haven’t seen Manchester City’s new right-back in action yet, but they will next season.
City fended off competition from Barcelona and Bayern Munich to sign the 18-year-old Brazilian from Coritiba.
18. Pablo Mari | Arsenal
Current market value: £4.32m (Previous value: £1.62m)
Pablo Mari became Mikel Arteta’s first signing as Arsenal’s head coach back in January.
The Spanish centre-back, who was previously on Man City’s books, has made a handful of appearances for the Gunners this season.
17. Eddie Nketiah | Arsenal
Current market value: £9.9m (Previous value: £7.2m)
Eddie Nketiah spent time on loan at Leeds United during the first half of the season before returning to his parent club in January.
The England Under-21 international has netted four goals in 14 appearances for the Gunners in 2020.
16. Tariq Lamptey | Brighton
Current market value: £2.88m (Previous value: N/A)
A diminutive but hugely talented right-back, Lamptey signed a three-and-a-half year deal with Brighton in January after leaving Chelsea.
Expect that £2.88 million valuation to increase dramatically over the coming months.
15. Matty Longstaff | Newcastle
Current market value: £3.24m (Previous value: N/A)
If only Matty Longstaff could play Manchester United every week.
Both of the 20-year-old’s Premier League goals this season have come against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
14. Kortney Hause | Aston Villa
Current market value: £5.85m (Previous value: £2.25m)
Kortney Hause is 24 now and only recently established himself as a regular starter at Aston Villa.
Will another Premier League club snap him up if Villa go back down to the Championship?
13. Brandon Williams | Man Utd
Current market value: £9.9m (Previous value: £6.3m)
Mason Greenwood isn’t the only youngster who has made a big impression at Old Trafford this season.
Left-back Brandon Williams, who turns 20 in September, has a massive future ahead of him.
12. Angelino | Man City
Current market value: £18m (Previous value: £14.4m)
The 23-year-old Spanish defender made six league appearances for City during the first half of the season before completing a loan move to RB Leipzig in January.
11. Pedro Neto | Wolves
Current market value: £10.35m (Previous value: £6.3m)
Pedro Neto joined Wolves from Braga last summer and has chipped in with three goals and three assists during his debut Premier League campaign so far.
The Portugal Under-21 international only turned 20 in March.
10. Max Aarons | Norwich
Current market value: £18m (Previous value: £13.5m)
Still just 20 years old, another season or two in the Championship might benefit Max Aarons.
Then again, it wouldn’t be a shock if a top-flight club come for him this summer.
9. Todd Cantwell | Norwich
Current market value: £18m (Previous value: £13.5m)
Todd Cantwell will almost certainly get a move this summer after Norwich’s relegation was confirmed.
The 22-year-old has netted six goals and registered two assists this term.
8. Daniel Podence | Wolves
Current market value: £10.8m (Previous value: £5.4m)
A skilful Portuguese winger who joined Wolves from Marseille in January, we’re yet to see the best of Daniel Podence over here in England.
But from the glimpses we have seen, it’s clear he possesses bundles of ability.
7. Jarrod Bowen | West Ham
Current market value: £14.4m (Previous value: £9m)
West Ham forked out over £20 million to sign Jarrod Bowen from Hull City, but Transfermarkt’s valuation of the forward is lower.
The 23-year-old has found the step up to Premier League level a little tricky, but he has scored one goal and provided three assists in 10 appearances.
6. Japhet Tanganga | Tottenham
Current market value: £6.48m (Previous value: £720k)
Despite the fact he’s been in and out of the Spurs team this season, the 21-year-old defender is rated highly by Jose Mourinho.
5. Mason Holgate | Everton
Current market value: £12.15m (Previous value: £6.3m)
After a spell on loan at West Brom last term, Mason Holgate returned to Everton at the start of the season and has featured regularly for the Toffees in the Premier League.
4. Bukayo Saka | Arsenal
Current market value: £18m (Previous value: £11.7m)
The 18-year-old is a massive talent and Arsenal fans were understandably thrilled when he put pen-to-paper on a new long-term contract earlier this month.
With one league goal and six assists to his name, the teenager’s potential is frightening.
3. Gabriel Martinelli | Arsenal
Current market value: £22.5m (Previous value: £16.2m)
Saka’s equally talented teammate, Gabriel Martinelli, has scored 10 goals in all competitions for the Gunners this season.
The Brazilian looks a natural-born goalscorer and we should see him playing a more prominent role next term.
2. Reece James | Chelsea
Current market value: £20.25m (Previous value: £13.5m)
Another player with bags of potential, 20-year-old Reece James signed a new long-term contract extension with Chelsea in January.
The youngster has made 22 league appearances this season and registered two assists.
1. Mason Greenwood | Man Utd
Current market value: £26.1m (Previous value: £18m)
In truth, it would take significantly more than £26 million to tempt Man Utd into selling their best young player.
Add a zero onto the end of that figure and United would probably still say no.
Greenwood’s potential is limitless and the Red Devils are incredibly lucky to have him in their ranks.
