Kobbie Mainoo is in line for an improved contract in the summer to reward his breakthrough season at Manchester United.
But it's the way he has adapted to the first-team environment, showing confidence and composure beyond his years, that has most impressed staff and teammates at the club.
The Stockport-born teenager signed his first professional contract shortly after his 17th birthday in May 2022, and was handed a new deal a year ago.
United sources are not discussing the prospect of another one at the moment, with the focus on Mainoo maintaining the progress under manager Erik ten Hag that has seen him become an established first-team player.
Kobbie Mainoo is set to be rewarded with an improved contract after his breakthrough season at the club
The youngster scored a wonderful late winner for Man United against Wolves on Thursday night
But it's understood that he will be offered improved terms at the end of the season, in keeping with United's policy towards rising academy stars like Alejandro Garnacho and Mason Greenwood.
'We have a generational talent in Kobbie Mainoo,' said striker Rasmus Hojlund who has forged a close friendship with the 18-year-old midfielder since arriving at Old Trafford in the summer.
'You can see his composure, he is so relaxed on the ball. Now he's also starting to show that he has the scoring part of his game as well. He's a complete player.
'Us young guys, we have a little group and we're chatting to each other. Hopefully we can set an era for the club and be here many years together.'
Erik Ten Hag won't rush Mason Mount's return and risk another setback after already losing his £60million summer signing for nearly three months
United face West Ham at Old Trafford on Sunday when Victor Lindelof could become the latest long-term casualty to make a comeback.
However, Ten Hag won't rush Mason Mount's return and risk another setback after already losing his £60million summer signing for nearly three months with a calf injury.
'What's now important is we have to do it very secure to get him fit. Step by step, don't force it,' said the United boss.
'It's very frustrating for him. I really want to be there for him because he had such high expectations and I had high expectations.'
