Mason Greenwood is proud to be placed in a similar talent bracket to former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie, with the 19-year-old forward considering such talk to be “a nice little comparison”.

The highly-rated graduate of the Red Devils’ famed academy system has drawn similarities to a Premier League Golden Boot winner of the past due to his predatory instincts in front of goal.

Greenwood has shown that his left foot can be as devastating as that of a famous Dutchman that helped to deliver title glory to Old Trafford during Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season at the helm in 2012-13.

Asked about the Van Persie comparisons during a Q&A on United’s official website, Greenwood said:

“It’s nice if people think I play like him and shoot like him a little bit.

“For an all-time great like him, it’s nice to have that little thing that people say.

“I used to watch him at United and obviously at Arsenal as well. He’s a good quality striker.

“I’ve watched a lot of football games and a lot of Premier League strikers and obviously pick up a few things and watch a few clips. It’s a nice little comparison.”
